The current production features a cast of four Notre Dame students who portray a dysfunctional family ? as fragile as the glass animal collection they display in their home ? that slowly retreats from reality into quiet desperation.p. The production is directed by Siiri Scott, assistant professional specialist in FTT, and will feature an outreach program for area high schools, which includes educator resource guides for teachers and study guides for students, as well as classroom workshops and special events for students and teachers before the Friday and Saturday performances.
