Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, 565 Camano Ave., Langley —
by Tennessee Williams
directed by Tristan A.B. Steel
Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility living in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son Tom and her daughter Laura. Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, as the world of illusion she has struggled to maintain in order to make life bearable collapses about them.
Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) explores passion with daring honesty, and forged a poetic theatre of raw psychological insight that shattered conventional proprieties and transformed the American stage. The autobiographical The Glass Menagerie brought what Mr. Williams called “the catastrophe of success.”
