Tennessee Williams’ first successful play — “The Glass Menagerie” — will be performed on the Nebraska Wesleyan University stage September 27-30.
The Glass Menagerie is a four-character memory play narrated by Tom. Tom’s father abandoned the family long ago, leaving him with the dull responsibility of supporting his mother and sister. His mother wants nothing more than to find a suitable suitor for her daughter, an awkward and disabled young woman who dotes over her collection of tiny glass animals. When Tom brings a friend home from work, mother and sister jump to woo him. But Jim is engaged, and Tom’s mother feels unforgivably betrayed.
The student-directed play will be performed September 27-30 at 7:30 p.m. with matinee shows September 29-30 at 2 p.m. All shows will be performed in Miller Theatre, located at 51st Street and Huntington Ave.
Admission is $10 for adults, $7.50 for seniors, and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased online at theatre.nebrwesleyan.edu or reserve tickets by calling the box office at 402.465.2384.
