THE GLASS MENAGERIE
New Edgecliff Theatre
The Hoffner Lodge [Northside]
Directed by Daryl Harris
Cast: Talia Brown as Laura, Landon E. Horton as Jim, Keisha Kemper as Amanda & Andrew Ornelas as Tom.
Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility, living in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, though her methods are ineffective and irritating. Tom is driven nearly to distraction by his mother’s nagging and seeks escape in alcohol and the world of the movies. Laura also lives in her illusions. She is crippled, and this defect, intensified by her mother’s anxiety to see her married, has driven her more and more into herself.
