One of the finest works of one of the greatest Twentieth Century dramatists, The Glass Menagerie was Tennessee Williams’ first great Broadway success.

Tom, a young would-be poet, struggles to support his overbearing and sentimental mother and his delicate, obsessive sister. The subject of this deeply touching, autobiographical play is the most fragile of all human emotions – hope.
