The Glass Menagerie was a part of the project Tennessee Williams centennial celebration. It premiered on December 20, 2011 at Dom omladine Belgrade and had it’s 10th rerun on February 2, 2013 in Amerikana Hall at Dom omladine.
The Glass Menagerie is the first successful play of Tennesee Williams. This is a love, family, psychological, poetic, social drama and much more. It speaks about lonely people who are wishing to fulfill their life purose and survive. Marriage, a job, travel, money, past – these are all illusions that keep them alive but in the same time push them further from life – further from the connection with another.
Williams says that he wants to see the thruth in theatre, and not jus a photographic copy of reality. This performance is searching for the thruth, which is always different, alive and impossible to catch.
