With a new Introduction by Robert Bray ‘Tennessee Williams will live as long as drama itself’ Peter Shaffer Abandoned by her husband, Amanda Wingfield comforts herself with recollections of her earlier, more gracious life in Blue Mountain when she was pursued by ‘gentleman callers’. Her son Tome, poet with a job is a warehouse, longs for adventure and escape from his mother’s suffocating embrace, while Laura, her shy crippled daughter, has her glass menagerie and her memories. Amanda is desperate to find her daughter a husband, but when the long-awaited gentleman caller does arrive, Laura’s romantic illusions are crushed. The Glass Menagerie, Tennessee William’s evocation of loneliness and lost love, is one of his most powerful and moving plays.
