“Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.” 

THT REP presents a family drama of great tenderness, charm, and beauty, Tennessee Williams' "THE GLASS MENAGERIE."

"THE GLASS MENAGERIEis an icon of the American theater. 

The story follows Amanda Wingfield, a remnant of Southern gentility now living in a dingy apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. 

The father has deserted them, leaving Tom to support his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable. 

When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda and Laura have each created to make life bearable shatter. 

This memory play is set in St. Louis during the Great Depression and is widely considered to be one of the most significant plays of the 20th century!
