A beautiful and poetic play by the immortal Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie features Southern belle Amanda, past her prime, living with her two grown children. Amanda dreams of a better life for her shy and crippled daughter, so she pushes her son to find a “gentleman caller” for the girl. However, the arrival of the gentleman caller sends shockwaves through the family and causes cracks to form in the delicate fantasies that have kept them going.
IUP Theater alumnus Derrick Shane (’14) directs this American classic for its 70th anniversary.
The Glass Menagerie runs August 7, 8, and 9 at 8:00 p.m. and August 10 at 2:00 p.m. The production will play the Waller Hall Studio Theater.
Tickets are available on the IUP Ticket page, and the remaining seats will be sold at the door 45 minutes before the show. Tickets are priced at $14 for regular, $12 for senior, and $10 for I-Card holders.
