The Playhouse San Antonio is putting on Tennesee Williams’ classic memory play with a twist — in their upcoming production of The Glass Menagerie, the setting has been moved “from an apartment in St. Louis to the common area of a mid-century mental hospital.” With this one change, the production is allowed to delve deeper into the play’s central theme, shifting the perspective to further expose the dysfunction and fragility of the narrator’s reality-challenged family. The script has not been altered at all: Tom Wingfield will still guide the audience through a painful memory of his sister and mother that served as a turning point in his own life. What the production does is simply alter the focus, as if a glass figurine had been shifted so that it scatters prismatic light across the stage.
