?The Glass Menagerie?, is a adorable little play written be Tennessee

Williams. The play takes place in tiny apartment, behind an ally, during the

1940?s. There is three main charecters, Amanda, Tom, and Laura. Amanda, the

mother takes care of her two children as a single mother. She likes to have

whats best for the both of her children, but somethimes favors Amanda more.

Amanda is a worrier, who is upset all the time, and still crys over her husband

leaving her. Tom is the narrator, and brother of Laura. He works in a factory,

and always after work he would go to the movies and get drunk. Laura is

Amanda?s other child who has a crippled leg. She is very selfconcous about

herself, and always looks at the bad things, instead of good. Amanda treats

Laura as if she is crippled, and believes because she is twenty- one, will never

have a gentleman caller. Which is a very big deal towards Amanda. Laura is very

shy and instread of worrying about guys, she?d rather play with her glass

menagerie collection. Her glass menagerie collection, reminds us of her

throughout the whole play, as in being so fraggle and small. Towards the end of

the play, Laura recieves a gentleman caller. His name is Jim, he is a nice

average man, and he is brought home with Tom because, they both work together.

Amanda makes a huge deal out of this; she thinks that she has to get Laura a new

dress, clean the house up spotless, and make a big dinner. There is one problem

though, they hardly have any money. She does the best she can, and Laura shines

like a dimond. When Jim arrives, he turns out to be an old buddy from high

school, Laura secrectly adored. At the sight of him she almosts faints. After

dinner, she finnaly begins to talk to him alone. He thinks that she is beautiful

and tries to show her all the good things in life. She shows him her glass

menagerie, and they dance. While dancing, he leans over and kisses her, but he

drops Laura?s favorite glass animal. He apoligies, and explains how he

shouldn?t of kissed her because, he is ingaged. Laura is heart broken very

badly, she has never had anyone to hurt her like this before. It just goes to

show how fragle she is in ?The Glass Menagerie?.
