THE GLASS MENAGERIE

Despite all the setbacks and disappointments in her life Amanda Wingfield has never given up on her hopes and dreams. Amanda has always imagined a bright future for her two grown up children Tom and Laura – plenty of success, great careers and happy families. But her children have other plans. Tom earns a living by working in a shoe factory but longs to write poetry and Laura has created her own imaginary world, known as the Glass Menagerie.

Some theatre-goers view the piece as a romanticised nostalgic social drama from global-recession America. But the show gains a new, more current dimension nowadays, in a society with more pressures and anxieties than previously.
