Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 pm with a 2:30 pm matinee on Saturday and Sunday
Set in the segregated, Depression-era St. Louis, Missouri, an all too typical American family balances the power of their memories with the reality of their challenges after being abandoned by the patriarch of the household, whose presence is still felt in the sound of jazz and blues filling the air. The mother, Amanda, and son, Tom, struggle to connect despite their apparent familial love, as the daughter, Laura, proves incapable of living a normal life outside the safety of their small apartment. The need to provide for Laura becomes an all-consuming family mission that finds its potential resolution in Jim, an all-too average young gentleman caller who unwittingly finds himself carrying the hopes and dreams of every character in the play.
