Since its premier in the 1940s, Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie has proven an enduring classic, with warmth, poetry and humor, revealing the secrets and riddles of the human heart in a play steeped in everyday life.
From Laurette Taylor to Helen Hayes, to Katherine Hepburn, Joann Woodward, Judith Ivey, Cherry Jones and our own Pat Taylor, the character of Amanda Winfield continues to rule the roost of her sensitive, eccentric, and dysfunctional family, doing the best she can for her two children, in her one-parent household, weathering the depths of the Great Depression, with humor, charm and an iron hand in a silk glove.
Amanda Winfield's son Tom, the narrator of the play, tells the delicate story with wit and feeling, becoming wrapped up in reliving the tale of his fragile sister, Laura, and the night, at their mother’s suggestion, he brought a Gentleman Caller home to meet her. Does he tell the story to understand what happened in the past, and why, or in hopes that one day, he can change the way it ends?
This production of the first astonishing play from one of our great American authors is in honor of one of our region’s favorite performers, Pat Taylor. This production is led by Pat’s son, Louisville theatre professional, Kevin Taylor. Reserve your tickets for our production in November. You’ll thank yourself for the favor.
