The Glass Menagerie
By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Redtwist Literary Manager, Josh Altman

Opens Saturday, July 28, at 3pm

Company member and Jeff Award-winner, Jacqueline Grandt, plays Amanda
in Tennessee Williams’ most intimate play, up close and personal at Redtwist

In Williams’ deeply personal—and autobiographical—memory play, Tom Wingfield reveals to us a critical moment in his family’s life. Brimming with false hope and desperation, this vivid and penetrating drama explores the disguise of illusion and a family’s struggle to survive. Redtwist approaches this American masterpiece from the unique perspective of its explosive storefront space to re-examine the dark secrets of a young man’s family, the debris from which emerged the legendary American playwright.
