SYNOPSIS & INFORMATION
Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company will present THE GLASS MENAGERIE, the haunting ‘memory’ play by Tennessee Williams from September 18th through October 10th. This classic of the American theatre is a must-see production!
Tennessee Williams rose from obscurity in 1945 when his semi-autobiographical play, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, opened on Broadway. The play is about a Depression-era family struggling in a small apartment that is too cramped to house the larger than life dreams of its inhabitants. In it, there’s Tom, the restless dreamer, his fragile, pathologically shy sister Laura, and their domineering mother, Amanda, a faded Southern belle. When a gentleman caller comes for dinner, the events that transpire over the course of the evening change the family’s lives forever.
Performances for this beautiful piece of theatre are September 18th through October 10th. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm. There will be one Sunday matinee on September 20th at 2:30pm. Tickets are $25.00 for students and senior citizens and $30.00 for adults. Tickets may be purchased by visiting our TICKETS page.
All performances will be at Island ETC – 2317 Mechanic Street in Galveston. For additional information or group rates for groups of ten or more, please call the theatre at 409-762-3556.
