'Glass Menagerie' to wrap up season
Keystone Repertory Theater, a summer theater in residence at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, will close its 2014 season with Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie.” The production will be performed in the Waller Hall Studio Theater Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tennessee Williams’s classic semiautobiographical piece — celebrating the 70th anniversary of its premiere — is explored and re-imagined through narrator, Tom, and his memories. Tom directly engages with his audience and takes them back to St. Louis in 1937, where his mother, Amanda, obsesses over finding a “gentleman caller” for her daughter, Laura.
Recent IUP theater alumnus Derrick Shane will direct this American classic.
Tickets are available now at http://iuptickets.com and at the Hadley Union Building box office on the IUP campus. Tickets can also be purchased by calling (724) 357-1313.
