The play follows an African-American family’s move from the American South to Brooklyn in 1950. Like Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, Crumbs from the Table of Joy is a coming-of-age memory play that examines the ability of humans to be flexible with the twists and turns of life. The production will be directed by Karen Dacons-Brock and will take place at the Durham Arts Council PSI Theater. It will run over the first two weekends of March.

The Tennessee Williams-centered season will conclude in May with a play that was hugely inspiring to the iconic playwright: Anton Chekov’s The Seagull. Anya Reiss’s radical new comedic adaptation delves into the mysteries of the human condition and explores the beauty and tragedy of human feelings. The Seagull will be directed by Jonathan Bohun Brady and will be performed at a historic country farmhouse on the banks of the Eno River.
Bartlett Theater’s inaugural production of Tennessee Williams’ THE GLASS MENAGERIE set a powerful precedent: an accessible American Classic that still packs a emotional punch. A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is one of the most famous plays of the modern theatre.
