After another delicious breakfast we went to the Literary Seminar where there was discussion on the plays that we saw yesterday.
The afternoon play was The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. Boy, was this play a downer! It is the story of a dysfunctional family: a mother, daughter, and son. the mother is continually reliving her youth as a southern belle, the son is stuck in a job he hates, and the daughter is so shy she won’t leave the house. At the end of the play, the mother is still reliving her youth, the daughter has had a visit from an old high school male friend, but after he leaves to go to his girl friend, she reverts back to her shy self, and the son has left home. Nothing is resolved; but life goes on.
For supper, we went to a Thai restaurant and had a great dinner with appetizers, entrees and desserts.Fried bananas…reminded us of Whataburger fried pies!!We had another opportunity to interact with actors while we were having supper. The actor who portrayed Richard III ate at the table next to us and we enjoyed conversation with him. Before we left, one of the fathers from R&J came in with friends. It's always good to see them out and be able to compliment them on their performances.
It rained a couple of times but the play continued. The play is a story of two feuding families and a couple of young lovers, one from one family one from the other. As everyone knows, the young lovers die at the end of the play.
