Nicholls Players to present “The Glass Menagerie”

THIBODAUX, La. — The Nicholls Players will present next week Tennessee Williams famous play exploring mental health, homosexuality and family struggles, “The Glass Menagerie.”

The four-person cast will perform next weekend in the Mary and Al Danos Theater. Tickets are $7 for students who present their Colonel Cards and general admission is $15.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Thursday, March 21, through Saturday, March 23, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 24.

Williams’ first successful play, “The Glass Menagerie” premiered in Chicago in 1944 and has had many successful revivals on Broadway throughout the years.

The play takes place in a St. Louis apartment of the Wingfields, in which a mother pines for her days as a southern belle and wishes similar success on her children and her son, Tom, who works a menial job to support the family but wishes to be on his own. The drama of the play centers around an evening in which the family hosts a gentleman caller for Laura Wingfield, Tom’s sister, who has an inferiority complex and largely isolates herself in caring for a glass menagerie collection. The gentleman caller is Jim O’Connor, a former high-school athlete who has fallen on tough times and now works in a shoe warehouse with Tom.

Cast and crew of the Nicholls Players are made up of Nicholls students from various majors and some community members.
