TENNESSEE WILLIAM’S THE GLASS MENAGERIE OPENS AT PENDRAGON THURSDAY
Tennessee William’s classic play The Glass Menagerie performed by Pendragon Theatre Sept 12. The play, known as one of the most enduring classics of our time and which catapulted Williams from obscurity to fame, originally premiered in 1944 and continues to move audiences today. Directed by the theatre’s Executive Artistic Director, Karen Lordi-Kirkham, the production is a memory play that presents the story of Tom Wingfield and his need to put the ghosts of his past to rest. Drawn from William’s life, this play revolves around the fragility of our dreams, the power of our illusions, and the complicated nature of our family connections.
Award winning Actress, Beth Glover, will be returning to the Pendragon stage to play the matriarch Amanda. Glover last performed at Pendragon three years ago as Blanch Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire. Based out of New York City, she most recently played the Wicked Stepmother in the touring production of the Tony award winning musical Cinderella. She has been in 5 other national tours and many plays off-Broadway and around the country. Laura, the fragile daughter, will be played by Pendragon stage veteran, Liv Paulson, who recently portrayed Mozart’s wife, Constanze, in Pendragon’s production of Amadeus. Other cast members include Miles River Willow as the protagonist Tom, and Dylan Duffy as Jim, the gentleman caller.
