Actors invited to audition

Actors are invited to audition on Saturday for roles in Evolution Theatre Company’s, Dinna Myers-directed production of Tennessee Williams’ play The Glass Menagerie.

Set in St Louis in 1937, Williams’ classic is an American drama of a dire family’s challenges and fragility.

In this memory play, narrator Tom Wingfield, who is also a character in the play, tells the story from his memories.

Tom works a tiresome job in a shoe warehouse in order to support his mother, Amanda, and his sister, Laura. His father, Mr Wingfield, left the family years ago, and with the exception of one postcard, has not been heard from since. But his presence is pervasive: his picture still hangs in the family’s living room.

The roles of Amanda and Tom are cast but the parts of Laura, a fragile young girl (age 16-26) with a minor physical impairment, and an overbearing mother, and Jim, a gregarious up-and-coming young man (age 18-30) with a bright future, are available.

Auditions for The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams will be held at Evolution Theatre, 75 Disraeli Street, Saturday at 11am. Just show up ready to read.
