"The Glass Menagerie" is one of the great plays of the American theatre and is produced regularly by professional and non-professional theatres in the United States and abroad. Written by Tennessee Williams, "The Glass Menagerie" is a four-character, semi-autobiographical “memory play” set in St. Louis in the years between 1937 and 1944. It has been written that the play is “one of the few autobiographical plays in American theatre to reach a common depth of understanding and compassion for the human condition.”

The play deals with the relationship between an aging Southern Belle, Amanda Wingfield, and her painfully shy daughter Laura, as told by the son and brother, Tom, who is both the narrator of and a character in the play. A fourth character, a gentleman caller appears in the final act.

"
The Glass Menagerie" will be directed by Arthur Hopper, recently retired chair of the theatre department at UW-Stevens Point.

Character Breakdown
Amanda Wingfield Laura and Tom’s mother. A proud, vivacious woman, Amanda clings fervently to memories of a vanished, genteel past. She is simultaneously admirable, charming, pitiable, and laughable.

Laura Wingfield Amanda’s daughter and Tom’s younger sister. Laura has a bad leg, on which she has to wear a brace, and walks with a limp. Twenty-three years old and painfully shy, she has largely withdrawn from the outside world and devotes herself to old records and her collection of glass figurines.

Tom Wingfield Amanda’s son and Laura’s older brother. An aspiring poet, Tom works at a shoe warehouse to support the family. He is frustrated by the numbing routine of his job and escapes from it through movies, literature, and alcohol.

Jim O’Connor An old acquaintance of Tom and Laura. Jim was a popular athlete in high school and is now a shipping clerk at the shoe warehouse in which Tom works. He is unwaveringly devoted to goals of professional achievement and ideals of personal success.
