Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. Hit Production Returns for Extended Production at Theater Wit! THE GLASS MENAGERIE By Tennessee Williams Directed by ensemble member Hans Fleischmann May 23 – June 30, 2013
Following its, critically acclaimed, sold-out run at Angel Island this winter, Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. is pleased to transfer its Jeff Recommended production of Tennessee Williams’ classic THE GLASS MENAGERIE to Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave., for an extended run May 23 – June 30, 2013. Directed by ensemble member Hans Fleischmann, who also stars as Tom, the remount features the full original cast, including Walter Briggs, Maggie Cain and Joanne Dubach. Tickets for THE GLASS MENAGERIE are available at www.theaterwit.org or by calling (773) 975-8150.
Beautiful and heart-wrenching, THE GLASS MENAGERIE focuses on a man obsessed with regrets from his past. Living on the streets, he navigates an audience through the gritty back-alleys of his imagination. Truth and delusion collide in director Hans Fleishmann’s re-imagining of Tennessee Williams’ classic memory play.
FOUR STARS! “[A] masterpiece rendered in all its fragile beauty… not to be missed!”
–Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. was established in 1986 and is currently in its 27th full season of theater. We are committed to producing theater as an ensemble including actors, directors, and designers who are intimately involved in the process. We approach material, published and original, dealing with the fears and passions of the human condition
involving characters who are often misunderstood, societal outcasts, and victims of their own exile. We have garnered a reputation for making risky choices by embracing challenging material for both our audience and the artists involved. We are dedicated to bringing light to controversial subjects and presenting alternative viewpoints of these subjects giving our audience different information to consider as they walk away from the theater.
