The Tabor College Theater Department presents The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. The production will be held April 10, 11 and 12 at 7:00 p.m. and April 13 at 2:00 p.m., in the Lab Theater, located in the lower level of the H.W. Lohrenz Building at 400 S. Jefferson in Hillsboro.

In this classic American family drama, Tom Wingfield revisits memories of a meager life with his mother, Amanda, and sister, Laura, in a small St. Louis apartment. Each of the characters sustains illusions in order to cope with harsh realities of a radically changing world, and Tom is caught between responsibility toward his family and the adventurous life he desires.

Laurel Koerner, director of Theater says this play demonstrates real life struggle.

“The play conveys a young man’s struggle between a sense of responsibility and the pursuit of fulfillment. It deftly expresses the tensions that can exist between parents and young adult children while sharing close confines,” Koerner comments.

“The well-crafted, small-cast play provides a great opportunity to focus on telling the story and telling it well,” says Koerner.

General admission: $6, Students: $4. To reserve your tickets, contact Kaylene Unruh at (620) 947-3121 ext. 1033 or via email at kayleneu@tabor.edu.

“This American classic is often considered Williams’ finest work,” Koerner closes.
