A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, The Glass Menagerie is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre.  Set in 1937, we meet Amanda Wingfield, a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura.  Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, though her methods are ineffective and irritating.  Tom is driven nearly to distraction by his mother's nagging and seeks escape in alcohol and the world of the movies.  Laura also lives in her illusions.  She is "crippled," and this, along with her mother's anxiety to see her married, drives her more and more into herself.  Amanda and Laura strive to create a word of illusion in order to make life bearable, but in the end, it collapses around them.
