Belvoir St Theatre presents
The Glass Menagerie

3 May 2016 to 7 May 2016

Tennessee Williams was one of the greatest American playwrights of the 20th century. The Glass Menagerie is his most loved play. Put in the hands of Belvoir Artistic Director Eamon Flack, this production delivers on every account – winning Best Play and Best Actress at the 2015 Helpmann Awards.

A beautiful, slightly haunting play, The Glass Menagerie follows a family as it falls apartalong with the dreams that had given them some ragmented substance. Amanda Wingfield is a single mother played by the great Pamela Rabe. Her son Tom, (Luke Mullins) is an aspiring poet who works in a warehouse, her daughter Laura is studying to become a secretary. They live in a small apartment pent up with fantasies and urges, rage and wounded tenderness. It is not a magnificent existence, but each has one true idea for a better life. Enter the Gentleman Caller …

The work is touching, depicting how change affects the individual (as well as the group), even as it rips them asunder.
