Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. presents a gritty re-imagining of Tennessee Williams' haunting, semi-autobiographical masterpiece THE GLASS MENAGERIE. The original memory play was the legendary playwright's first major success and is considered one of the great American plays of all time. Mary-Arrchie's version tells the story through the memories of a homeless man living on the streets of St. Louis, post-WWII. In his imagination, he relives the events that led to his ultimate demise. LA-based Jeff Award winning ensemble member Hans Fleischmann returned to Mary-Arrchie to direct this production, featuring an original score by Chicago musician Daniel Knox.
The production team for THE GLASS MENAGERIE includes: Rudy Galvan (asst. direction/dramaturg), Andrew Donnelly (stage mgmt), Matthew Gawryk (lights), Anna Henson (projections), Daniel Knox (composer), Grant Sabin (set), Stefin Steberl (costumes), Joe Court (sound design), Arianna Soloway (props), Gaby Labotka (rehearsal assistant), Mark Hackman (choreography).
