The Glass Menagerie: The Deluxe Centennial Edition by Tennessee Williams

When it opened in Chicago in 1944, The Glass Menagerie marked a turningpoint in American theater and in the life of its then unknown author. TennesseeWilliamss elegiac masterpiece brought a radical new lyricism to Broadway-andtoday the tragedy, fragility, and tenderness of this ldquo;memory playrdquo; endure. In a cramped St. Louis apartment the aging Southern belle Amanda Wingfield, long preoccupied by memories of gentlemen callers and a world that nolonger exists, is energized by the dilemma of how to save what remains of herfamily. Her restless son Tom-factory worker, aspiring poet, and the narrator ofthe play-is swept up in Amandarsquo;s comic and heartbreaking schemes to findLaura, his agonizingly shy and handicapped sister, a husband. This new edition of The Glass Menagerie comes with an exciting introduction by the playwright Tony Kushner. Williamsrsquo;s classic essay on the effect ofswift and unexpected fame, ldquo;The Catastrophe of Success,rdquo; his original production notes, and a new essay on the autobiographical background of the play bythe distinguished Williams scholar Allean Hale are also included.
