ATC: The Glass Menagerie (18-22 Oct 2011)


The American Theatre Company presents 

The Glass Menagerie 

by Tennessee Williams


When you look at a beautiful piece of delicately spun glass, you think of two things: how beautiful it is and how easily it can be broken.”

Tennessee Williams’ classic play, The Glass Menagerie, has held audiences spellbound ever since it was first performed over 60 years ago, and is undoubtedly among the best American plays ever written. Williams invites us into the dream-world of a mother as she weaves a fantastical web of delicate memories and deceptions, while desperately trying to find a better life for her children.  For her daughter, the fragile fantasy world is all too easily shattered when the real world comes calling.  For her son, a better world can only come by escape from the stifling atmosphere at home.

“I didn’t go to the moon.  I went much farther.  For time is the longest distance between two places.”


The American Theatre Company is proud to present this American classic to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Tennessee Williams’ birth.  Starring Janet Wishnetsky, Chris Flores, Hugo de Chassiron and Clémence Robin and directed by Carrie Ellwanger.


October 18-22 at 8pm, Palais des Beaux Arts.
