The Glass Menagerie

Belvoir St Theatre

This is the first time I have seen Tennessee Williams' play which established his reputation; 'The Glass Menagerie'.

The play tells of the Wingfield family. A deserted mother is desperate to find a suitor for her introverted and handicapped daughter. Her son, narrating the play in flashback, loves his sister dearly but can no longer abide his mother's yearnings and her living in the past.

This is a beautifully performed production especially by Pamela Rabe as the mother and Rose Riley as the daughter.
