Our guest this week is Amy Glass. She's directing "The Glass Menagerie," which continues this weekend at Corn Stock Theatre's Winter Playhouse. Glass says she was drawn to the show for the family dynamics it depicts, and for the theme of escape which is present in each of the central characters -- and which continues to have resonance in 2017. The play is a "memory play" in which narrator Tom Wingfield appears in the main story, and reflects on it as narrator years later. Glass talks about using lighting and staging to define the two spaces. Glass also talks about the emotional journey she wants the audience to experience over the course of the performance.
"The Glass Menagerie" continues tonight, tomorrow night, and Sunday afternoon at the Corn Stock Winter Playhouse, in Upper Bradley Park in Peoria.
