Rage Productions' The Glass Menagerie comes to Royal Opera House Theatre
Abandoned by her husband, Amanda comforts herself with recollections of her earlier, more gracious life when she was pursued by ‘gentleman callers’. While her son Tom, a poet with a job in the docks, longs for adventure and escape from his mother’s suffocating embrace, Laura, her shy crippled daughter, has her glass menagerie and her memories. Meanwhile, Amanda is desperate to find her daughter a husband. But, when the long-awaited gentleman caller does arrive, Laura’s romantic illusions are crushed.
Written by Tennessee Williams, the play transports people into private worlds where desire clashes with obdurate reality and where loss supplants hope.
