Glassic Play

Tennessee Williams deconstructed

Word on the street about Arizona Theatre Company’s new production of The Glass Menagerie is that it is not your grandparents’ Tennessee Williams.

Apparently, director Juliette Carrillo has deconstructed this famous memory play, inserting some of the author’s stage directions into actors’ dialogues and dressing the set with period-correct furnishings a little at a time, as the story progresses. It’s an unconventional approach to a story many of us know well, a story in which Tom Wingfield recalls his sister and his mother, who'd been abandoned by his father some years before.
