Tennessee on Amanda and Faith

Cherry Jones as Amanda Wingfield in the current Broadway revival of The Glass Menagerie.

Tennessee Williams
In Conversation with James Grissom
New Orleans

Amanda is one of those people--one of those characters--for whom Judgment Day arrives hourly. Amanda can see her future, and it is bleak. But she fights. She dreams. She moves forward--for herself and for her children--making wishes on moons and stars and four-leaf clovers and raindrops and what is left of her faith. She is metaphorically on her knees every hour of the day, praying for a faith that was bleached out with her youth.
