Big Daddy is home from the hospital and his son and daughter-in-law are trying their hardest to inherit the family estate for themselves in this hilariously funny spoof that mixes the major characters from Tennessee Williams' most acclaimed plays.
Nothing is sacred and everything profane when Maggie the Cat becomes Stanley Kowalski's sister-in-law and Brick, Laura, and Blanche become siblings in this soap opera-esque parody. It's a dysfunctional group best summed up by Big Daddy himself -- "This whole family crawls around in lust, greed, and weird behavioral traits."
Written and conceived by Maureen Morley and Tom Willmorth of Chicago's Illegitimate Players, The Glass Mendacity takes the best and most melodramatic of Tennessee Williams' plays and puts them under a fun house mirror to stretch and warp it to humorous delight. Everything has been mish-mashed -- Big Daddy, Belle Reeve, Menagerie's apartment, Blanche and Stanley from Streetcar, Laura's glass animal collection, Brick and Maggie, the gentleman caller. There is even a nod to Stella when Stanley suddenly bursts out [you'll have to see the show to know!]
