Glass Menagerie - March 2013 - Entertaining the people of Barford since 1945...

Stuck in a dingy flat in an industrial town, in a world on the edges of war and gripped by the Great Depression, Amanda Wingfield clings to another time and place when she enjoyed a life of leisure and high society, with a myriad of ‘gentlemen callers’. That time has passed, and she now finds herself abandoned by her all-too-charming husband, left to survive on her own with her son, Tom, and daughter, Laura. While Amanda relives her memories, and Tom loses himself in nights out going to the movies, Laura’s separation from reality increases until she becomes like an ornament in her glass collection – too fragile to move from the shelf. Can an unexpected dinner guest provide hope and a means of escape?
