About the show

This beloved American masterwork tells the story of a single mother in the South striving to secure a future for her two grown children. More…

While Amanda's cripplingly shy daughter escapes to a world of glass, her aspiring writer son dreams of a world beyond the confines of St. Louis. Any hope of salvation is pinned on the visit of a "Gentleman Caller" for the girl, but it seems he may only shatter their fragile fantasies. This production will feature a multicultural cast and bring the plight of the American Family to a new generation through this exciting and edgy new production. Presented by the Masterworks Theater Company.
