Cal Shakes presents The Glass Menagerie

Wed, July 5, 2017

July 5 through July 30

California Shakespeare Theater continues its 43rd Season with the play that made Tennessee Williams famous and secured his place in the American Classic canon. The Glass Menagerie is told through the illusion of Tom Wingfield’s memory as he recounts an episode from his youth. Tom and his sister Laura live with their devoted mother, Amanda, a former Southern debutante. When Amanda arranges for a "Gentleman Caller" to come for dinner, her all-too-clear intentions force Laura and Tom to confront—in their own ways—the shattering weight of her overbearing expectations. The Glass Menagerie plays from July 5 through July 30; for tickets and information, contact the Cal Shakes Box Office at 510.548.9666 or visit
