'The Glass Menagerie' to be staged in Kingsport

January 17–26, 2020 @ Kingsport Renaissance Center

• JAN. 17-26: Kingsport Theatre Guild presents “The Glass Menagerie” at the Kingsport Renaissance Center, Kingsport, Tenn. Amanda Wingfield is a faded remnant of Southern gentility who lives in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura, who has a physical handicap and debilitating shyness. Tom supports his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable. When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda and Laura have each created in order to make life bearable collapse about them. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. $10/$12/$15. 423-392-8427, www.kingsporttheatre.org
