In this fresh interpretation of Williams' haunting memory play, Tom Wingfield (Darragh) sits writing in a hotel room, trying to forge his past into art. Soon Tom's space is overtaken by the cramped apartment he once shared with his mother Amanda (Ivey), his beloved sister Laura (Keeley) and unrequited dreams as fragile as Laura's collection of tiny glass animals. There, Tom relives the Gentleman Caller's (Mosley) visit - the night that changed his family forever.
This production of Williams' semi-autobiographical play premiered May 20th, 2009 at the Long Wharf Theatre (Gordon Edelstein, Artistic Director) in New Haven, CT and was directed by Gordon Edelstein. The play originally premiered in Chicago in 1944, moving to New York the next year, where it won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, featuring Laurette Taylor as Amanda in one of the iconic performances in American theatre history. The Glass Menagerie was Williams' first successful play.
