This American Classic is the story of Amanda Wingfield, who once was pretty and popular, but who now seeks happiness in her dreams and memories. And this is the story of her son, Tom, who looks to movies and alcohol for his hope for happiness, and her daughter, Laura, desperately shy and seeking happiness in her glass figurines. Into this family comes the “Gentleman Caller”, Jim O’Connor, who comes to dinner, but cannot solve any of the family’s problems. This is a story of dreams that cannot come true, told through Tom’s memories.

A one-to-two minute dramatic monologue is recommended, (but comedic overtones are welcome). If you do not have a monologue, selected cold readings will be provided at the audition. The audition may also involve a short interview with the Director. If called back, you will be asked to read from the script with other actors.

If you would like to read the play before auditioning, the script is on reserve at the Performing Arts Desk, 5th floor, Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street, and at the Community Desk of the Toronto Public Library, Cedarbrae Branch, at 545 Markham Road in Scarborough.

For information, to book an audition time, or to cancel your audition time in advance, please contact Alison Overington at If you must cancel on your audition night, please call the STG unit at 416-439-5349.
