Redtwist Theatre Extends THE GLASS MENAGERIE thru Sept 16

The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
directed by Josh Altman is extending for two weeks through September 16, running Thu, Fri, Sat at 7:30pm and Sun at 3pm.

In Williams' deeply personal-and autobiographical-memory play, Tom Wingfield reveals to us a critical moment in his family's life. Brimming with false hope and desperation, this vivid and penetrating drama explores the disguise of illusion and a family's struggle to survive. Redtwist approaches this American masterpiece from the unique perspective of its explosive storefront space to re-examine the dark secrets of a young man's family, the debris from which emerged the legendary American playwright.

Cast: Ryan Heindl as Tom Wingfield; Jacqueline Grandt as Amanda Wingfield; Sarah Mayhan as Laura Wingfield; Chris Daley as Jim O'Connor
