16 – 19 October @ Dolphin Theatre, UWA, Crawley ·
Presented by Graduate Dramatic Society ·

Tennessee Williams’ most powerful and haunting play, The Glass Menagerie, is being staged at UWA’s Dolphin Theatre this October. Presented by the Graduate Dramatic Society and directed by Jane Hille, the classic American drama is a stirring portrait of a family that struggles with the past, future – and each other.

Amanda Wingfield desperately struggles to provide her fragile daughter with at least one “gentleman caller” while her son Tom dreams of escaping his job at a warehouse and oppressive life at home. The semi-autobiographical play is filtered through Tom’s memory, reflecting on the glories of times past with echoes of loneliness, fragility and innocent hope.The Glass Menagerie was Williams’ first successful play, catapulting him to the forefront of American theatre with other works such as A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

Performance times: 7.30pm on 16, 17 &  18 October, 2pm & 7.30pm on 19 October.
Tickets are $35, $25 concession – book at www.ticketswa.com/event/glass-menagerie.
