THE GLASS MENAGERIE

by | Read by Montgomery Clift, Julie Harris, Jessica Tandy, et al.

Poetry & Drama • 1.8 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

In this semi-autobiographical play the domineering matriarch of the Wingfield family tries to find a “gentleman caller” for her fragile daughter. This is a “memory play”; the narrator/character, Tom, continually shifts from narration to his “in scene” character. This technique makes the drama a most effective selection for audio. The cast is extraordinary throughout, with each performer deftly handling the most subtle nuances of Williams’s poetic realism. Jessica Tandy’s portrayal of Amanda deserves special kudos. The production and direction of the performance are equally engaging. Through the use of sound effects and evocative music, the listener is swept into the troubled, poignant world of these haunting characters. S.L.D. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 93]
