Join Vance-Granville Community College for an engaging evening of dining and drama as our Drama and Culinary Arts students present our Fifth Annual Dinner Theater!
VGCC will present Tennessee Wiliiams' “The Glass Menagerie” on Thursday, April 27, and Friday, April 28, in the Civic Center on VGCC’s Main Campus in Vance County. The event will begin with a buffet dinner at 6 p.m. each evening.
First staged in 1944, “The Glass Menagerie” is a “memory play” (narrated by one of the characters, recalling his experiences) and is based in part on Williams’ own memories of his family. In 1945, the play premiered on Broadway, won the prestigious New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for the best American play of the year, and launched Williams to fame. “The Glass Menagerie” has been adapted for television twice and as a Hollywood feature film twice. It has been revived for the Broadway stage numerous times, including a new production starring Sally Field that is currently in previews. A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, “The Glass Menagerie” has become one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre.
