The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
directed by Josh Altman is extending for two weeks through September 16, running Thu, Fri, Sat at 7:30pm and Sun at 3pm.
In Williams' deeply personal-and autobiographical-memory play, Tom Wingfield reveals to us a critical moment in his family's life. Brimming with false hope and desperation, this vivid and penetrating drama explores the disguise of illusion and a family's struggle to survive. Redtwist approaches this American masterpiece from the unique perspective of its explosive storefront space to re-examine the dark secrets of a young man's family, the debris from which emerged the legendary American playwright.
