Tom invites a co-worker to dinner, an event that energizes his mother, Amanda, eager to find a "gentleman caller" for his painfully shy sister, Laura. The dinner is fraught with unspoken emotional currents, the absent but brooding presence of the family’s father, and Amanda’s memories of her younger self’s social triumphs. Williams said of his best-known play that it "can be presented with unusual freedom of convention." This production by Upstream Theater is guaranteed to move you, and move you to think.
