Special to The Hays Daily News

"The Glass Menagerie," a four-character memory play by Tennessee Williams, will debut at Fort Hays State University beginning Thursday through Sunday.

Performances start at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

All performances are at Felten-Start Theatre in Malloy Hall on the FHSU campus.

The play depicts Amanda Wingfield, a faded and tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and daughter, Laura.

As the plot unfolds, the world of illusion Amanda and Laura have striven to create in order to make life bearable collapses about them.

As the title of the play suggests, the glass menagerie, or collection of animals, is the play's central symbol. Laura's collection of glass animal figurines represents a number of facets of her personality. Like the figurines, Laura is delicate, fanciful and old-fashioned.

Tickets are $15 for the general public and $7 for FHSU students and seniors.

For more information, contact the Department of Music and Theatre at (785) 628-4533.
