Theatre-goers in Gloucestershire will have the chance to see the Everyman’s first in-house play in more than 15 years when it stages Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie from Wednesday 13 to Saturday 16 June 2012.
Considered to be one of the 20th century’s greatest plays, The Glass Menagerie was American playwright Williams’ first great success in 1944.
The story is set in St Louis during the depression era of the 1930s, and follows the struggles and gradual disintegration of the Wingfield family, told through the recollections and memories of Tom Wingfield.
It has since been adapted several times for television and the big screen, and must have the local theatre’s stamp of approval; it’s very own Everyman Theatre Company will be presenting the latest offering with direction coming from Paul Milton.
What’s more, visitors can look forward to seeing the renowned Royal Shakespeare Company actress Julia Hills – star of BBC hit sitcom 2 Point 4 Children and the national tour of Calendar Girls – leading the cast as the family matriarch, Amanda: a faded southern belle trying to raise her children alone under harsh financial conditions.
Book tickets now and join the audience for this very special in-house presented play at Cheltenham’s Everyman.
