Find out more about Tennessee Williams as a playwright, the context in which he was writing and the themes he tackled.

This member-led discussion will consist of a short, informal introduction to Tennessee Williams’ play, The Glass Menagerie, prior to our visit to see the production at the Royal Exchange Theatre.

A presentation will be given by Tony Jackson, with additional input from Joanna Lavelle. As well as providing the background to the play and Williams, some questions and talking points will be suggested to consider when attending the performance.

The session will be 45-60 minutes long and will include ample opportunity for questions and discussion among the participants.

All welcome, whether or not you can attend the production at the Royal Exchange.

Good to know: the meeting will be online using zoom, allowing all users to be seen and join the discussion.
