Few plays have explored the byways of the human heart as poignantly and poetically as Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie. In this touching audio, we meet the embattled Wingfield family: Amanda—faded southern belle, abandoned wife, dominating mother, who hopes to match her daughter with an eligible "gentleman caller;" Laura—lame and painfully shy, she evades her mother's schemes and reality by retreating to a world of make-believe; Tom—sole support of the family, he eventually leaves home to become a writer but is forever haunted by the memory of Laura.
Also included on this audio are priceless recordings of Tennessee Williams bringing his own interpretations to the wistful opening monologue and the tragic ending, as well as to his own brilliantly charming poetry and his uproariously wicked short story, The Yellow Bird.Biographie de l'auteur :
