TU's Department of Theatre Offers a Production of "The Glass Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams
The Department of Theatre here at TU will soon present one of the greatest plays of the modern American stage, "The Glass Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams. It's the play that made Williams a household name in the mid-1940s -- a clearly autobiographical drama, set in Depression-era St. Louis, in which an aging and rather unstable Southern Belle longs for her youth and dreams of a better life for her children: the restless would-be poet, Tom, who narrates this memory play, and the shy if not reclusive Laura, Tom's elder sister. The play is directed by Steven Marzolf and features Machele Miller Dill as Amanda, who is Tom's mother; both Marzolf and Dill are members of TU's Theatre faculty, and they join us today on StudioTulsa. "The Glass Menagerie" will be staged in Kendall Hall's Chapman Theatre on the University of Tulsa campus on October 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 16th, 17th, and 19th.
