Characters:

Amanda Wingfield A proud, vivacious woman, clinging fervently to memories of a vanished, genteel past. Deserted by her husband, left alone to care for her two children. She is a fierce survivor scraping by to make ends meet. She is simultaneously sensitive and harsh, admirable and laughable

Tom Wingfield The play's narrator recounting memories of his family to the audience. Languishing in a dead end job in a warehouse, a restless dreamer, torn between his responsibility to his family and chasing his desires. Explosive, temperamental, lonely soul who is deeply devoted to his sister and constantly at odds with his mother.

Laura Wingfield A sensitive and painfully shy young woman seeking refuge from reality in an imaginary world of glass animals and old records. She is a gentle and kind soul with a tender regard for her mother and brother.

Jim O’Connor A co-worker of Tom's from the warehouse and a former classmate of Laura's. An average, everyday, nice guy with an easygoing demeanor. His popularity and promise peaked in high school but he continues to approach the world with a positive outlook.
