THML Theatre Company Presents GIRL OF GLASS
THML Theatre Company finishes its spring season, 'Opening Doors, Closing the Gap,' with Girl of Glass by Jennifer Kokai. The production will run from April 4 - 21 at The American Theatre of Actors in the Beckmann Theatre.
In Girl of Glass, the audience follows Truly, a charismatic shopkeeper with an enigmatic past and an appetite for variety, in her relationships with Edgar, a lost delivery man, and Tom, a poet and playwright with a mysterious burden.
Girl of Glass was created partially in response to Tennessee Williams' play, The Glass Menagerie; the play explores an other-worldly space and forces each character to consider the question, "what happens when we decide to let go of the memories that trap us?" It is a fresh and modern take on the darkness that plagued Tennessee Williams, written from an innovative and feminine perspective.
Girl of Glass was previously workshopped at the Lark Play Development Center in 2014 and was a Semi-Finalist for the Eugene O'Neill Playwright's Conference in 2015. This will be its first professional production. Girl of Glass is directed by Krista Jo Miller and assistant directed by Natalie Ahn with stage management by Bleu Zephra. The show features Kayla Friend as Truly, David Michael Kirby as Tom, and Kurt Robbins* as Edgar.
