THE GLASS MENAGERIE introduced Tennessee Williams as one of the preeminent playwrights of the 20th century. In the play, we meet the unforgettable Wingfield family, living in a St. Louis tenement in the 1930s. As told through the memory of Tom Wingfield, we see his aging mother and former belle, Amanda Wingfield, desperately try to lure her painfully shy daughter out of a world of glass figurines and illusion. Tom, longing to be free of his family responsibilities, escapes into nights of endless movies and alcohol.

The cast includes a long-time Chico favorite Joyce Henderson as Amanda Wingfield. Alex Hilsee is the daughter, Laura. The brother, Tom Wingfield, is played by Evan Allen and Jeremy Votava rounds out the cast as Jim, the “gentleman caller.”
