“The Glass Menagerie” Comes to TCC Southeast

Tennessee Williams’ iconic play The Glass Menagerie runs at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 28-March 1 with a 1:30 March 1 matinee in the C.A. Roberson Theatre (ESEC 1401) at Tarrant County College Southeast, 2100 Southeast Parkway, 76018.

From her cramped St. Louis apartment, Amanda Wingfield dreams of her days as a Southern debutante while worrying about the future of her aimless son and unmarried daughter. When a gentleman caller arrives for dinner, the Wingfields are flooded with hope; however, it soon becomes unclear if his presence will change things for the better or shatter their fragile illusions.

Director Angela Inman, associate drama professor, finds the play a cautionary tale that reminds us we forever live with our choices. She says the message is as relevant today as 80 years ago when the play was first produced.

“Time passes, decisions are made, and we cannot go back. Only memories remain.”

Admission is “pay what you can.” Proceeds support Theatre Southeast student scholarships. Children under age 6 will not be admitted.
