'The Glass Menagerie' opens in the Purple Masque Theatre
Kicking-off the K-State Theatre and Dance season is "The Glass Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams, directed by Jennifer Vellenga at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 29-Oct. 2 and Oct. 6-8; and at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 2 and Oct. 9 in the Purple Masque Theatre in West Stadium.
Amanda Wingfield is a faded remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty with her son, Tom, and daughter, Laura. Amanda struggles to give meaning and direction to her life and to the lives of her children. Tom and Laura attempt to escape reality through their own distractions and illusions. The family and their inner worlds are shaken by a dinner guest.
