Glass Menagerie (October 5th-9th)

The Glass Menagerie is part of the Theatre Department's "Masterpiece Theatre" series. It will be performed October 5th-9th. You can learn more about the performance here and buy tickets here.

It's fitting that the Theatre Department is performing Glass Menagerie now because this year is the centennial of Tennessee Williams birth. If you'd like to read more about Tennessee Williams and the celebrations this year, you may want to check out this New York Times travel article or this feature from the British newspaper The Independent.

The Southern Quarterly journal celebrated the centennial with a special summer issue. We have access to this journal through our Humanities International Complete database. You can click on this link, click on Humanities International Complete, and then click on Vol. 48 Issue 4 - Summer2011 to find the issue.

We also have several books (and one film) about The Glass Menagerie and about Tennessee Williams:
