Rep Stage Presents the Tennessee Williams Classic, “The Glass Menagerie”

Rep Stage Presents the Tennessee Williams Classic, “The Glass Menagerie”
Production Runs April 28 to May 15, 2022, at Howard Community College’s Horowitz Center

 

Columbia, MD – Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College (HCC), presents Tennessee Williams’ classic play, “The Glass Menagerie,” April 28 through May 15, 2022. Directed by Rep Stage’s Producing Artistic Director Joseph W. Ritsch, this exciting production explores how ghosts of the past continue to haunt.

Amanda Wingfield is a faded remnant of Southern gentility who now lives in a cramped St. Louis apartment with her seemingly aimless son, Tom, and her debilitatingly shy daughter, Laura. With their father absent and the Great Depression in motion, the siblings find comfort in their distractions — alcohol, movies, and writing for Tom and a collection of glass animals for Laura. When a gentleman caller arrives for dinner, the Wingfield family is flooded with hope. But it’s uncertain if this mysterious visitor will change things for the better or shatter a family’s fragile illusions. This production asks what memories truly look like, and how that answer differs for each of us.

“As an actor portraying Laura, it’s been fun and a challenge discovering her many nuances in the manufactured world she lives in. I’ve read Tennessee Williams’ work in the past, but this experience has given me a new found respect for his work.” said Brittany Davis.

“It’s been wonderful to take on this beloved classic and thrilling to see it through fresh eyes with an ensemble whose members are willing to deeply look. I can’t wait to share our work with audiences,” said actor Grace Bauer, who portrays Amanda.

Tickets for “The Glass Menagerie” are $40 for general admission, $35 for seniors and military, and $15 for students with a current ID. Thursdays are $20. The production is in The Rouse Company Foundation Studio Theatre at the Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center on HCC’s campus, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, Maryland.
