Directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall Trilogy, People Places and Things, Best of Enemies) this new production of Tennessee Williams’ celebrated memory play comes to the Duke of York’s Theatre for a limited 14-week run.
With performances from Paul Hilton (The Inheritance, Lady Macbeth, A Very British Scandal), Tom Glynn-Carney (The Ferryman, Dunkirk), Lizzie Annis (The Witcher: Blood Origin) and Victor Alli (Death on the Nile) alongside Adams (Dear Evan Hansen, Enchanted), The Glass Menagerie features an award-winning cast.
Though devastated by her husband’s abandonment, Amanda Wingfield remains committed to the dream of building a good life for her children, Tom and Laura. However, this belief soon opposes her children’s own wants and ambitions.
Tom cannot help but feel suffocated by his life in St Louis, and Laura is close to shattering under the pressure from her mother, who believes that to ensure her daughter’s future, she must find her a suitable husband. As tensions build, the fine thread that connects dignity to desperation is pulled to breaking point.
