Steel River Playhouse is thrilled to present this next offering in our American Classics Series, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is a sensitive and touching autobiographical drama which launched the career of American master dramatist, Tennessee Williams.

His plays are not only among the most produced in the world, but they also influenced an entire generation of contemporary American playwrights.
