The original memory play was the legendary playwright's first major success and is considered one of the great American plays of all time.

LA-based Jeff Award winning ensemble member Hans Fleischmann returned to Mary-Arrchie to direct this production, featuring an original score by Chicago musician Daniel Knox.

The production team for THE GLASS MENAGERIE includes: Rudy Galvan (asst. direction/dramaturg), Andrew Donnelly (stage mgmt), Matthew Gawryk (lights), Anna Henson (projections), Daniel Knox (composer), Grant Sabin (set), Stefin Steberl (costumes), Joe Court (sound design), Arianna Soloway (props), Gaby Labotka (rehearsal assistant), Mark Hackman (choreography).
