Title:
Glass Menagerie, The
Annotation:
William's masterpiece of gentle pathos and tender charm is the story of four characters from the lower middle class in St. Louis during the 1930s. Laura is the unforgettable character who is crippled and so abnormally shy that she reflects the fragility of her "glass menagerie," a collection of small crystal figurines. The play escalates to gripping dialogue as the other characters attempt to shatter her retreat from reality.
