by Tennessee Williams
Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. She strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, though her methods are ineffective and irritating. Tom is driven nearly to distraction by his mother’s nagging and seeks escape in alcohol and the world of the movies. Laura is crippled and this defect, intensified by her mother’s anxiety to see her married, has driven her more and more into herself. The family struggles through a world of illusion in their attempt to find happiness, redemption and, possibly, freedom.
