The play has strong autobiographical elements, featuring characters based on its author, his histrionic mother, and his mentally fragile sister Laura.
In writing the play, Williams drew on an earlier short story, as well as a screenplay he had written under the title of The Gentleman Caller.
The play premiered in Chicago in After a shaky start, it was championed by Chicago critics Ashton Stevens and Claudia Cassidy , whose enthusiasm helped build audiences so the producers could move the play to Broadway where it won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award in The Glass Menagerie was Williams' first successful play; he went on to become one of America's most highly regarded playwrights.
A faded Southern belle , abandoned by her husband, who is trying to raise her two children under harsh financial conditions.
Amanda yearns for the comforts of her youth and also longs for her children to have the same comforts, but her devotion to them has made her—as she admits at one point—almost "hateful" towards them.
Amanda's son. Tom works at a shoe warehouse to support his family but is frustrated by his job and aspires to be a poet.
He struggles to write, all the while being sleep-deprived and irritable. Yet, he escapes from reality through nightly excursions to the movies.
Tom feels both obligated toward yet burdened by his family and longs to escape. Amanda's daughter and Tom's elder sister. A childhood illness has left her with a limp, and she has a mental fragility and an inferiority complex that has isolated her from the outside world.
She has created a world of her own symbolized by her collection of glass figurines. The unicorn may represent Laura because it is unique and fragile.
An old high school acquaintance of Tom and Laura. Jim was a popular athlete and actor during his days at Soldan High School. Subsequent years have been less kind to Jim; however, and by the time of the play's action, he is working as a shipping clerk at the same shoe warehouse as Tom.
His hope to shine again is conveyed by his study of public speaking, radio engineering, and ideas of self-improvement that appear related to those of Dale Carnegie.
Amanda's absent husband, and Laura's and Tom's father. Wingfield was a handsome man, full of charm, who worked for a telephone company and eventually "fell in love with long-distance," abandoning his family 16 years before the play's action.
Although he does not appear onstage, Mr. Wingfield is frequently referred to by Amanda, and his picture is prominently displayed in the Wingfields' living room.
This unseen character appears to incorporate elements of Williams' father. The play is introduced to the audience by Tom, the narrator and protagonist, as a memory play based on his recollection of his mother Amanda and his sister Laura.
Because the play is based on memory, Tom cautions the audience that what they see may not be precisely what happened.
Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle of middle age, shares a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son Tom, in his early twenties, and his slightly older sister, Laura.
She worries especially about the future of her daughter Laura, a young woman with a limp an after-effect of a bout of pleurosis and a tremulous insecurity about the outside world.
Tom works in a shoe warehouse doing his best to support the family. Amanda is obsessed with finding a suitor or, as she puts it, a "gentleman caller" for Laura, her daughter, whose crippling shyness has led her to drop out of both high school and a subsequent secretarial course, and who spends much of her time polishing and arranging her collection of little glass animals.
Pressured by his mother to help find a caller for Laura, Tom invites Jim, an acquaintance from work, home for dinner.
The delighted Amanda spruces up the apartment, prepares a special dinner, and converses coquettishly with Jim, almost reliving her youth when she had an abundance of suitors calling on her.
Laura discovers that Jim is the boy she was attracted to in high school and has often thought of since, though the relationship between the shy Laura and the "most likely to succeed" Jim was never more than a distant, teasing acquaintanceship.
Initially, Laura is so overcome by shyness that she is unable to join the others at dinner, and she claims to be ill. After dinner, however, Jim and Laura are left alone by candlelight in the living room, waiting for the electricity to be restored.
Tom has not paid the power bill, which hints to the audience that he is banking the bill money and preparing to leave the household.
As the evening progresses, Jim recognizes Laura's feelings of inferiority and encourages her to think better of herself.
He and Laura share a quiet dance, in which he accidentally brushes against her glass menagerie, knocking a glass unicorn to the floor and breaking off its horn.
Jim then compliments Laura and kisses her. After Jim tells Laura that he is engaged to be married, Laura asks him to take the broken unicorn as a gift and he then leaves.
When Amanda learns that Jim is to be married, she turns her anger upon Tom and cruelly lashes out at him, although Tom did not know that Jim was engaged.
Tom seems quite surprised by this, and it is possible that Jim was only making up the story of the engagement as he felt that the family was trying to set him up with Laura, and he had no romantic interest in her.
The play concludes with Tom saying that he left home soon afterward and never returned. He then bids farewell to his mother and sister and asks Laura to blow out the candles.
It then moved to the Royale Theatre from July 1, , until its closing on August 3, The show was directed by Eddie Dowling and Margo Jones.
The cast for opening night was as follows:. Laurette Taylor's performance as Amanda set a standard against which subsequent actresses taking the role were to be judged, typically to their disadvantage.
The characters and story mimic Williams' own life more closely than any of his other works. Williams whose real name was Thomas closely resembles Tom; his mother, Amanda.
His sickly and mentally unstable older sister Rose provides the basis for the fragile Laura whose nickname in the play is "Blue Roses", a result of a bout of pleurosis as a high school student , though it has also been suggested that Laura may incorporate aspects of Williams himself, referencing his introverted nature and obsessive focus on just one aspect of life writing for Williams and glass animals in Laura's case.
Rose was left incapacitated and institutionalized for the rest of her life. With the success of The Glass Menagerie , Williams was to give half of the royalties from the play to his mother.
He later designated half of the royalties from his play Summer and Smoke to provide for Rose's care, arranging for her move from the state hospital to a private sanitarium.
Eventually, he was to leave the bulk of his estate to ensure Rose's continuing care. The play was reworked from one of Williams' short stories "Portrait of a Girl in Glass" ; published Certain elements have been omitted from the play, including the reasons for Laura's fascination with Jim's freckles linked to a book that she loved and often reread, Freckles by Gene Stratton-Porter.
Generally, the story contains the same plot as the play, with certain sections given more emphasis, and character details edited for example, in the story, Jim nicknames Tom "Slim", instead of "Shakespeare" .
Another basis for the play is a screenplay Williams wrote under the title of The Gentleman Caller. Williams had been briefly contracted as a writer to MGM , and he apparently envisioned Ethel Barrymore and Judy Garland for the roles that eventually became Amanda and Laura, although when the play was eventually filmed in , Gertrude Lawrence was cast as Amanda and Jane Wyman as Laura.John Neumeier war siebzehn, als er Tennessee Williams' Theaterstück «The Glass Menagerie» in seiner Heimatstadt Milwaukee zum ersten.
