The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams.
Danú is thrilled to be back for six shows only in a socially distanced settling. The actors will be four metres from the audience (only 4 actors). The audience will be at 1/3 capacity following all health and safety guidelines (masks are mandatory inside theatre) with correct spacing between, in front and behind audience members.
The Glass Menagerie is one of the most beloved plays of the 20th Century by American playwright: Tennessee Williams. This riveting “memory play” follows the fragile Wingfield family: Tom, an aspiring poet, his painfully shy, disabled sister Laura, and their mother Amanda, a faded southern belle. The Glass Menagerie premiered in 1944 and catapulted Williams from obscurity to fame. The play has strong autobiographical elements, featuring characters based on its author, his histrionic mother, and his mentally fragile sister Laura. In writing the play, Williams drew on an earlier short story, as well as a screenplay he had written under the title of The Gentleman Caller. The play premiered in Chicago in 1944 and transferred to Broadway where it won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award in 1945. The Glass Menagerie was Williams' first successful play; he went on to become one of America's most highly regarded playwrights. The play has had many Broadway revivals, the most recent being in 2017. There are two Hollywood film versions of the play. Many of the finest actors have lined up to act in this play such as Katherine Hepburn, Jessica Tandy, Cherry Jones, Sally Field, Judith Ivey, Maureen Stapleton, Kiefer Sutherland, John Heard and Jessica Lange. This play is: considered to be one of the greatest tests of an actor’s ability. Dreams and reality collide in this play of exquisite beauty. Not to be missed!
