The Play Ground

Stella, Blanche, Stanley. All Tennessee Williams' character names that we know so well. Add to list the Gentleman Caller of THE GLASS MENAGERIE, nameless but also memorable. Menagerie tells the story of the southern Wingfield family: Amanda, abandoned by her husband, son Tom, a factory worker who longs to be a poet and daughter Laura, who is painfully shy. The Purple Rose Theatre Company is staging this familiar and complex American classic through December 17.
