The Williams classic will play the Connecticut venue May 7-25. Directed by Jacqueline Hubbard, the cast will also feature Julia Kiley as Amanda, Catherine Domareki as Laura and Andrew Sneed as Jim. The Glass Menagerie, according to press notes, "glimpses the Wingfield family's struggle to hold its ground in 1939 St. Louis. Amanda, the matriarch of the family, is trying to maintain her dignity and provide for the future in the midst of the Great Depression. Her son Tom denies his own dreams to become the reluctant breadwinner after his father ran out on the family while his frail sister Laura has retreated to a homebound life where she finds comfort caring for her collection of little glass animals. The arrival of Jim, a 'gentleman caller,' at the Wingfield residence could be a sign of hope or a disturbance that will shatter their fragile home."
The creative team also includes set designer Dan Nischan, lighting designer Doug Harry and costume designer Pam Puente.
Peter Lockyer has been seen on Broadway in La Bohème, Cyrano—The Musical, Miss Saigon, The Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables. He portrayed Marius in the tour of Les Miz and Chris in the tour of Miss Saigon. Lockyer was also seen in the TV version of Gypsy as Yonkers.
