"The Glass Mendacity", a two-act comedy play will take place at The Delta Grand Theatre, 120 S . Market St., Opelousas LA.
The play will run from June 6 until the 9th. The performance on June 8 is a dinner theatre, catered by Crawfish House in Opelousas.
"The Glass Mendacity", written by Maureen Morley and Tom Willmorth is a two-act comedy/spoof of Tennessee Williams' most famous plays, "The Glass Menagerie", "A Streetcar Named Desire", and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". Williams' plays are family dramas, and as such, they are filled with fragile and damaged Southern characters who are driven to madness, alcoholism, deceit, and fantasy. Thus, they are easy targets for lampooning and parody, which is just what the authors of this play have done with them. In addition, the authors have taken family members from each play, mixed them up, and created an entirely new outrageous brood. Audiences with a strong familiarity of Williams' plays will get the most out of the show, but the humor of "The Glass Mendacity" is broad enough to make it appealing to all.
Tickets for all performances are available through the Delta Grand Theatre's.
