Memory is an illusion and the stage is an instrument to create it! The Glass Menagerie, a reflection of a time in Tom Wingfield's life when he decides to follow a dream versus continuing to support his relentless mother Amanda and Laura, his beloved sheltered sister. The illusion is filtered with music and light to create an atmosphere where the audience is transposed.
