Dalliance by Tom Stoppard, adapted from Arthur Schnitzler's "Lorelei"
This play caused a scandal when originally produced in Vienna in 1895. Translated by Tom Stoppard in 1986, it focuses on how the sexual mores of a society are indicative of the whole social fabric. Dalliance is a bitter sweet drama about a young working class girl who falls in love with a military officer. She alone has not learned that love is temporal and trivial, a mere series of dalliances.
Free to members: 2 non member donation.

A Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
The Glass Menagerie premiered in 1944 and catapulted Williams from obscurity to fame. The play has strong autobiographical elements, featuring characters based on Williams himself, his histrionic mother, and his mentally fragile sister Rose. In writing the play, Williams drew on an earlier short story, as well as a screenplay he had written under the title of The Gentleman Caller.
