Glass Menagerie

by Tennessee Williams |  Grades 11-12

Drama relating the interactions of Amanda, her son, her daughter Laura, and a very important gentleman caller.

Menagerie was Williams's first popular success and launched the brilliant, if somewhat controversial, career of our pre-eminent lyric playwright. Since its premiere in Chicago in 1944, with the legendary Laurette Taylor in the role of Amanda, the play has been the bravura piece for great actresses from Jessica Tandy to Joanne Woodward, and is studied and performed in classrooms and theatres around the world.
