Tennessee Williams Will Move You with His Imagination During The Glass Menagerie

In a production that explores segregated St. Louis and the vibrant lives of former Southerners navigating a new reality, The Firehouse Theatre portrays one of the most famous memory plays of the modern theatre. The Glass Menagerie, a Tennessee Williams classic, will be performed live this Saturday beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Tom works in a shoe warehouse to support his family since his father left the family without any apparent reason. He hates his job and seeks to run away from the responsibility through alcohol, cigarettes, and going to movies. At his mother’s urging, Tom brings his friend Jim to dinner as a potential suitor for his shy sister, Laura.

She shows him her glass menagerie collection containing her favorite unicorn, but while dancing with her, Jim happens to knock over the unicorn and breaks off the horn, making it a normal horse. After Jim confesses that he has a fiancée, a seriously hurt Laura offers him the broken unicorn as a souvenir.

A tale of broken dreams and altered realities, The Glass Menagerie is one live performance you shouldn’t pass up! Tickets range from 22 to 25 dollars and may be purchased online.
