Show Summary - The Glass Menagerie The Glass Menagerie is one of the best known works by great American playwright Tennessee Williams. It was first performed in 1944, and quickly made a name for Williams far and wide. Since then, he has written many other well known works such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, A Streetcar Named Desire,The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore, Sweet Bird of Youth, and The Night of the Iguana. The play is a four-hander, focusing on a man named Tom Wingfield, based off of Williams himself, who lives at home in St. Louis, Missouri with his histrionic mother Amanda Wingfield, and his frail, crippled sister Laura. In the course of the play’s events, Jim O’Connor, a gentleman caller, who was an old high school acquaintance of Tom and Laura, comes to visit, instilling a lot of hope in Laura, and especially in her mother, that this man could be their savior. Furthermore, the character of Tom and Laura’s deceased father, Mr. Wingfield, is present in his absence, in the form of a framed picture. The play is considered a “memory play,” as it is semi-autobiographical, and also because it embraces the form of memory to be non-conventional in structure and style. Instead of reporting facts realistically, the playwright takes liberties in omitting some details and exaggerating others, resulting in a beautiful sense of poetic freedom. The role of the gentleman caller is played by Finn Wittrock (Happy in the last revival of Death of a Salesman), and the role of Laura is played by newcomer Madison Ferris, making her Broadway debut. The production is directed by Sam Gold (Fun Home, The Real Thing, The Realistic Joneses), and produced by Scott Rudin.
