While Amanda strives to give her children a life beyond the decrepit St. Louis tenement they inhabit, she is herself trapped by the memory of her life past-- a life of cotillions and suitors and wealth, now long gone. Tom, working at a shoe factory and paying the family’s rent, finds his own escape in drinking and going to the movies, while Laura pours her energy into caring for her delicate glass figurines.. Tom, pressured by his mother to help find Laura a suitable husband, invites an acquaintance from the factory to the apartment, a powerful possibility that pushes Amanda deeper into her obsessions and makes Laura even more vulnerable to shattering, exposed like the glass menagerie she treasures. Williams’ intensely personal and brilliantly tender masterpiece exposes the complexity of our memories, and the ways in which we can never truly escape them.   Roles:   Amanda Wingfield:  A faded Southern belle, abandoned by her husband, who is trying to raise her two children under harsh financial conditions.    Tom Wingfield:  Amanda's son. Tom works at a shoe warehouse to support his family but is frustrated by his job and aspires to be a poet.    Laura Wingfield:  Amanda's daughter and Tom's elder sister. A childhood illness has left her with a limp, and she has a mental fragility and an inferiority complex that have isolated her from the outside world.   Jim O'Connor:  An old high school acquaintance of Tom and Laura. Jim was a popular athlete and actor during his days at Soldan High School.
