Nov 25 closing: Craig Erickson in GLASS MENAGERIE

And guess who's playing The Gentleman Caller around the corner at the Stanley? Craig Erickson, who's been seen in such Pacific Theatre shows as GRACE, GOD'S MAN IN TEXAS, PRODIGAL SON, and even... THE FURNITURE OF HEAVEN.

A Portrait of a Family
by Tennessee Williams

October 25–November 25, 2007 | Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage

“Stay fresh and pretty! It’s almost time for our gentleman callers to start arriving.” Tennessee Williams’s semi-autobiographical masterpiece - The Glass Menagerie, is an astonishingly intimate and moving portrait of the Wingfield family. From a dingy St. Louis apartment, faded Southern belle Amanda yearns for her idealized youth, while her grown children, Tom and Laura, struggle to escape their overbearing mother. Just when happiness seems beyond the grasp of these fragile individuals, hope arrives in the form of a gentleman caller.

This theatrical classic complements the Arts Club production of His Greatness, by Daniel MacIvor, the season opener the Granville Island Stage.

“Tennessee Williams’s first masterpiece” —The New York Times
