The Glass Menagerie
February 27, 2017
Oscar-nominated actress Margaret Avery starred in vignettes of Tennessee Williams' American classic, The Glass Menagerie. Directed by Associate Professor of Theater Justin Emeka '95, the play reimagines the Wingfields as a black family in East St. Louis during the turbulence of the early 20th century. Without altering the text, Emeka weaves black culture and music into the storytelling. Held at Cleveland Playhouse Square, the performance was just one of the many included in programming for this year’s Black History Month themed Ubuntu: I am Because We Are.
