Description

Few plays have explored the byways of the human heart as poignantly and poetically as Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie . In this touching audio, we meet the embattled Wingfield family: Amanda--faded southern belle, abandoned wife, dominating mother, who hopes to match her daughter with an eligible "gentleman caller;" Laura--lame and painfully shy, she evades her mother's schemes and reality by retreating to a world of make-believe; Tom--sole support of the family, he eventually leaves home to become a writer but is forever haunted by the memory of Laura.

Also included on this audio are priceless recordings of Tennessee Williams bringing his own interpretations to the wistful opening monologue and the tragic ending, as well as to his own brilliantly charming poetry and his uproariously wicked short story, The Yellow Bird .

display_description Menagerie was Williams' first popular success and launched the brilliant, if somewhat controversial, career of our preeminent lyric playwright. Since its premiere in Chicago in 1944, with the legendary Laurette Taylor in the role of Amanda, the play has been the bravura piece for great actresses from Jessica Tandy to Joanne Woodward, and it is studied and performed in classrooms and theaters around the world. A new introduction by prominent Williams scholar Robert Bray, editor of The Tennessee Williams Annual Review, reappraises the play more than half a century after it won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award: "More than fifty years after telling his story of a family whose lives form a triangle of quiet desperation, Williams's mellifluous voice still resonates deeply and universally." This edition of The Glass Menagerie also includes Williams' essay on the impact of sudden fame on a struggling writer, "The Catastrophe of Success", as well as a short section of Williams' own "Production Notes".
