The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams

Tom lives with his mother and crippled sister Laura in a tenements in the 1930s. His mother is always in a reverie about her old days where she had seventeen gentlemen callers with the false hope that shy Laura will find a gentlemen caller to marry.

We just finished reading this play for school. I really enjoyed it. Though some of the wording seems to go on for a while, it was lovely all the same. I liked the story and Laura was a likeable character while you can sympathize with Tom's need to to escape. I loved the symbollism with light and fire escapes.
Overall it's a good quick read if you like to read plays.

I give this play:
