In a cramped St. Louis apartment the aging Southern belle Amanda Wingfield, long preoccupied by memories of gentlemen callers and a world that no longer exists, is energized by the dilemma of how to save what remains of her family. Her restless son Tom ― factory worker, aspiring poet, and the narrator of the play ― is swept up in Amanda’s comic and heartbreaking schemes to find Laura, his agonizingly shy and handicapped sister, a husband.
