GORHAM – Tennessee Williams’ semi-autobiographical play, “The Glass Menagerie,” will be presented in a staged reading in February by the University of Southern Maine Department of Theatre.

Performances will be Thursday through Sunday, Feb. 12 through 15, on the main stage in Russell Hall on USM’s Gorham campus. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m. for Thursday through Saturday, and at 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The play is a classic, with Amanda, the domineering Southern belle mother; Laura, the fragile dreamy sister; and Tom, the angry, guilt-ridden brother.

Theater professors William Steele and Thomas Power are directing the cast of theater students. The four will read the play on a simple stage with basic lighting designed by Michaela Wirth and costumes designed by Jodi Ozimek.

Amanda will be read by Annette Bourque of Lewiston; Laura by Morgan Gould of Cape Elizabeth; Tom by Nate Amadon of Portland; and Jim, the gentleman caller, by A.J. Caron of Buxton. Tickets are $10, $7 and $5.
