I Theatre Presents The Glass Menagerie


The Glass Menagerie by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Tennessee Williams

19 - 28 May 2006

We are very proud to present, as part of I Theatre¡¯s Imago series, The Glass Menagerie. This powerful classic is considered one of Tennessee Williams¡¯ finest plays.
Hailed by critics as a ¡®Perennial Masterpiece,¡¯ The Glass Menagerie is 20th century playwriting at its finest; skilfully interweaving the tension of a crumbling family unit with the arresting power of dreams.
Originally set in the turmoil of Depression Era America; I Theatre vividly re-colours the story to focus on a troubled Eurasian family living in Post War Singapore.
The story revolves around Tom, a frustrated warehouse labourer who writes poetry on shoebox lids and dreams of travelling the world (Timothy Nga). He tells the story of life with his dramatic mother Amanda (Christina Sergeant) and crippled, painfully shy sister Laura (Emily Oehlers).
Amanda desperately holds onto the manners of her privileged past, protesting as Tom fights against his family responsibilities by getting drunk ¡®at the movies.¡¯ Meanwhile, Laura spends her days tending to her collection of glass animals in their rundown apartment, trying to ignore the terror of the world outside.
When Amanda encourages Tom to set Laura up with a suitable young man from the warehouse (Paul Hannon), unresolved tensions are forced to the surface, leading to an emotionally charged and unforgettable climax.
Don¡¯t miss I Theatre¡¯s production of The Glass Menagerie. With a strong cast of talented local and international actors, it¡¯s the ideal chance to experience this powerful classic!
