BWW Review: THE GLASS MENAGERIE at The Gate Theatre Photo BWW Review: THE GLASS MENAGERIE at The Gate Theatre
by Jini Rooney - May 2, 2019

Tennessee Williams in his essay 'The Catastrophe of Success' paints a poignant picture of his life following the startling success of his play The Glass Menagerie. He confides: ‚ÄúI was not aware of how much vital energy had gone into this struggle until the struggle was removed.‚ÄĚ Seven decades later Williams' masterpiece remains a staple in American schools and continues to profoundly move audiences. In this ‚Äúmemory play‚ÄĚ the Wingfields, a disenchanted St. Louis family, depict an alternative reality to their dull, dispiriting lives. The son and narrator, Tom Wingfield (Marty Rea) escapes to a brighter envisioned future, his mother Amanda (Samantha Bond) reaches into her glorious past in an attempt to fashion a similar reality for her daughter, and his painfully shy sister Laura (Zara Devlin) reluctantly emerges from the blissful world of her glass menagerie to entertain the possibility of love. Jim O'Conner (Frank Blake), the gentleman caller, appears in Act 2 oblivious of the complex family dynamics.
