Louisville Repertory Company to Present THE GLASS MENDACITY, 10/10-20
Louisville Repertory Company will open its 21st season with the comical spoof: The Glass Mendacity, by Maureen Morley & Tom Willmorth, and directed by Angela Miller at The Kentucky Center. The show runs October 10, 11, 12, 14, 18,19 @ 8:00pm and October 20 @ 2:00pm.
Big Daddy is home from the hospital and his son and daughter-in-law are trying their hardest to inherit the family estate for themselves in this hilariously funny spoof that mixes the major characters from Tennessee Williams' most acclaimed plays.
Nothing is sacred and everything profane when Maggie the Cat becomes Stanley Kowalski's sister-in-law and Brick, Laura, and Blanche become siblings in this soap opera-esque parody. It's a dysfunctional group best summed up by Big Daddy himself -- "This whole family crawls around in lust, greed, and weird behavioral traits."
Written and conceived by Maureen Morley and Tom Willmorth of Chicago's Illegitimate Players, The Glass Mendacity takes the best and most melodramatic of Tennessee Williams' plays and puts them under a fun house mirror to stretch and warp it to humorous delight. Everything has been mish-mashed -- Big Daddy, Belle Reeve, Menagerie's apartment, Blanche and Stanley from Streetcar, Laura's glass animal collection, Brick and Maggie, the gentleman caller.
