Hubbard Hall in Cambridge is producing Tennessee Williams’ classic The Glass Menagerie for the first time in its almost 40 year history. Opening Saturday (April 22) on Hubbard Hall’s mainstage, this great American play tells the tale of Tom, his sister Laura, their mother Amanda and the Gentleman Caller. A meditation on how the past can haunt our present, this drama made playwright Tennessee Williams famous and is perhaps his most personal work – giving us a window into his love for his real life sister Rose. Filled with laughter, love and longing, The Glass Menagerie is a great play about family, forgiveness and our desire to let go of the past.

Roger Danforth, recent Artistic Director of the Drama League of New York, directs a powerful cast including David Snider (last seen as John Proctor in the Hall’s production of The Crucible), Grace Sgambettera, recent Skidmore College graduate and Saratoga Shakespeare actor Woodrow Proctor and Cambridge’s very own Christine Decker as Amanda.
