The Glass Menagerie
By Tennessee Williams
“Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.”
So begins one of the most timeless and famous plays ever written, in which Amanda Wingfield and her painfully shy daughter Laura await the arrival of “the Gentleman Caller” who will transform the dross of their everyday lives into fine-spun gold.
