Thursday Theatre Talk on THE GLASS MENAGERIE, 10/29

October 15, 2015 - 3:43 PM

Tennessee Williams’s first major success as a playwright came in 1944-45 with The Glass Menagerie. The more we look at this familiar play, placing it in its biographical context, as well as in the theatrical experimentation of the 20th century, the more we sense displacement, as Williams transforms mental illness into physical disability, and rewrites the myth of gracious Southern living.  

Join Miriam Gilbert and Jennifer Buckley, colleagues in the Department of English, for a discussion of the questions raised by this “memory play,” and the conflict between fragility and wildness, delicacy and painful realities, in the Thursday Theatre Talk, October 29, 5:30pm, at Riverside Theatre.

 Free & open to the public, no reservations necessary.

THE GLASS MENAGARIE is onstage at Riverside Theatre, November 6 - 22.  Details & ticket info here.
