The Glass Menagerie, a drama by Tennessee Williams
Tuesday and Wednesday October 22 and 23
**Please note auditions are Tuesday and Wednesday
Set in St. Louis in 1937, Tom Wingfield, is an aspiring poet who toils in a shoe warehouse to support his mother, Amanda, and sister, Laura after being abandoned by their father. Amanda, originally from a genteel Southern family, regales her children frequently with tales of her idyllic youth and the scores of suitors who once pursued her.
The mother, Amada Wingfield, is 50’s in age. The other characters are 20’s (actors need not be this age, just able to play these ages). Amanda speaks in the Southern dialect of the upper class; the rest of the cast speaks in the “usual” (local Ohio) Mideast American dialect.
