THE GLASS MENAGERIE – March 2010
As the play opens, it is introduced to the audience by Tom as a memory play, based on his recollection of his mother, Amanda, and his sister, Laura. Amanda’s husband left the family years before and she remains stuck in the past. Tom works in a warehouse, chafing under the boredom of everyday life and spending much of his spare time watching movies in cheap cinemas. Amanda is obsessed with finding a suitor for Laura, who spends most of her time with her glass collection. At the insistence of his mother, Tom brings a young man home for dinner in the hopes he will be the long-awaited suitor for Laura. When Laura realizes Jim is the man she loved in high school and has thought of ever since, he dashes her hopes for a future, telling her that he is already engaged.
