Company Theatre to Present THE GLASS MENAGERIE, 10/3-19

The award-winning Company Theatre presents Tennessee William's masterpiece The Glass Menagerie,from October 3 through 19, at The Company Theatre Centre for the Arts, 30 Accord Park Drive, Norwell. The production is directed by directed by Joe Walsh, an Emerson graduate who most recently directed the Irish National Tour of Hairspray. Walsh will be developing and initiating Ireland's first college musical theatre program following this production.

Full of poetry and longing, Tennessee Williams' classic The Glass Menagerie, is one of American Theatre's most beloved works. Amanda Wingfield, a fading, tragic remnant of a Southern Belle living in a depression era St. Louis apartment, longs for her youth and dreams, striving for a better life for her children. Her restless son Tom - a would-be poet and the story's narrator - gets swept up in his mother's comical but heartbreaking schemes to find a husband for his painfully shy sister, Laura. Living in illusions, physically crippled Laura parallels her ills in emotional debilitation, driving herself into spiraling withdrawal. The crux of the action unfolds when Tom invites a young gentleman acquaintance to dinner, when Laura crudely tries to entrap the guest, momentarily lifted from her rose-colored-glass haze. An untimely revelation sends shock waves through the family, causing dangerous cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them loosely intact. Both shattering and shimmering, The Glass Menagerie is a must-see classic for an unforgettable night of theatre.

The Glass Menagerie is brought to life through The Company Theatre's trademark authentic sets, period costumes, dramatic lighting and exceptional cast.
