The Pretty Trap Summary

Before Tennessee Williams wrote one of his masterpieces, The Glass Menagerie, he wrote a one-act version called The Pretty Trap. Cause Célèbre will present the New York Premiere of this gem of a play directed by Antony Marsellis (Love Divided By, The Love Course). Katharine Houghton, who brought her fiancé, Sidney Poitier, home in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, is seated at a very different kind of dinner and plays one of Williams' quintessential female roles, Amanda Wingfield, the mother in The Glass Menagerie. The other characters are the same--Laura, Tom and the gentleman caller. But the tone is lighter and the ending is completely unexpected. Don't miss out on this engaging evening in a very limited engagement.
