THE classic Tennessee Williams play The Glass Menagerie is being staged at the Fisher Theatre at Bungay this evening and tomorrow.
The Open Space Theatre is bringing to the venue the story of Tom, frustrated in his job and distressed at home by the mental withdrawal of his crippled sister, Laura. Their mother clings frantically to the idea that Laura can lead a normal life and will not let her son fulfil his wish to escape a humdrum existence before his sister is found a husband.
It is a poignant story of hope and betrayal, and is at 7.30pm each night, with tickets �8.50 (concessions �6).
On Tuesday and Wednesday next week The Seagull Repertory brings it touring programme for the year to the Fisher. It is Yasmina Reza's West End comedy smash hit ART, which involves Serge buying an expensive piece of art that turns out to be a white canvas. His friends have divided opinions on it but their private thoughts soon become outspoken as they begin to argue, with hilarious results. It is at 7.30pm, with tickets �9 (�8 concessions).
