MOTHER AMANDA IS PORTRAYED AS A PERSON WE CAN CONDEMN, BUT ABOVE ALL WE MUST LAUGH AT.
The most beautiful and the worst things come out of love.

The famous play The Glass Menagerie was written by American author Tennessee Williams with strongly autobiographical elements from his own family. With humour and poignancy, and with the utmost honesty, it depicts the life of Amanda, an abandoned mother whose love and desire to make her children as happy as possible wreaks havoc on her family. The character of son Tom is the personification of Tennessee Williams himself, and his sister Laura is originally his real sister Rose. This family tragicomedy is about us, each of us, it's a mirror set to our ridiculous family antics. Because love makes the most beautiful and the worst things happen. Together with Amanda, Tom, Laura and suitor Jim, we laugh and cry at ourselves.
Simona Stasova: "I have finally matured into the role of Amanda's mother, the crazy mother I understand so well. Amanda is to kill and to love, just like our whole incredible life."
