The University of Scranton Players will present Tennessee Williams’ play “The Glass Menagerie” Sept. 22-24 and Sept. 29-Oct. 1

 

The University of Scranton Players will present Tennessee Williams’ play “The Glass Menagerie,” directed by Gabriel Vega Weissman, Friday through Sundays Sept. 22-24 and Sept. 29-Oct. 1. Performances begin at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday in the Joseph M. McDade Center for Literary and Performing Arts on the University’s campus.

 One of the masterpieces of American modern drama, “The Glass Menagerie” is universally hailed as a poignant play about family and the persistence of memory. “The Glass Menagerie” tells the story of the Wingfield family through Tom’s memories of his mother, Amanda; his sister, Laura; and Laura’s gentleman caller. Recently, the work was revived on Broadway with Oscar winner Sally Field as Amanda.

The University of Scranton Players production features: Conor Hurley of Woodside, New Jersey, as Tom Wingfield; Ali Basalyga of Scranton as Amanda Wingfield; Victoria Pennington of West Wyoming as Laura Wingfield; and Nicolas Gangone of Howard Beach, New York, as the gentleman caller. Basalyga is a graduate of West Scranton High School and Pennington is a graduate of Wyoming Area Secondary Center.
