Play: The Glass Menagerie Project

The text for this project is a synthesis of Williams’s favorite version of the play, “the readers’ version,” and the Acting Edition that roared into general use after the Broadway opening in 1945. Macalester’s production fulfills Williams’s vision of the play to include projections and Brechtian supertitles, and retrieves elements of the original musical score and Williams’s lyrical stage directions. At the core of Williams’s play is the violence of poverty, displacement and sexism, and how they wreak havoc on the self-determination of gentle souls.  The Glass Menagerie Project is based on the play(s) of Tennessee Williams. Directed by Beth Cleary.
