The Glass Menagerie

Time is the longest distance between two places. Following a multi Tony Award-nominated run on Broadway, Oliver and Tony Award-winning director John Tiffany (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two, Let the Right One In, Black Watch) revives his visionary staging of Tennessee Williams' heart-rending masterpiece about a family struggling to survive on hopes and dreams. A domineering mother. A daughter lost in a world of her own. A son desperate to leave. Former Southern Belle Amanda Wingfield, played by Tony Award-winning Broadway icon Cherry Jones, enlists the help of son Tom (Michael Esper) to find a husband for her fragile daughter Laura (Kate O'Flynn). But will the long-awaited 'gentleman caller' (Brian J. Smith) fulfil or shatter the family's delicate dreams? 'John Tiffany's stunning production. Be prepared to have the breath knocked out of you' New York Times 'John Tiffany conjures up theatrical magic' The Daily Telegraph 'An acute, lacerating, tender look at a family that has gone wrong' The Times 'A triumphant take on Tennessee Williams. Packed with intense psychological detail.' The Guardian A universally acclaimed creative team bring 1930's St Louis stylishly to life. With movement by Olivier Award-winning Steven Hoggett, set and costume design by multi Tony Award-winner Bob Crowley, lighting design by multi Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz, sound design from Olivier and Tony Award-winning Paul Arditti and music by celebrated composer Nico Muhly, this is a stunning and evocative production of Tennessee Williams' heart-breaking classic.

    Absolutely superb. A beautiful and atmospheric staging of a terrific play, with excellent performances to match. A memorable afternoon at the theatre.

    Evocative and brilliantly portrayed. Performances and characterisation that remain with you well after the play is over - timeless and moving!

  • Beautiful production

    25 April 2017

    I thought the production and artistic choices were brilliantly pulled together and breathed new life into this play. The set design and lighting was so clever and introduced a really exciting dimension. Also, the acting brought the characters to life in a highly realistic way, to the point of absolute frustration with them as people, rather than characters. The actress who played Laura brought me to tears in the second act (and on the tube home afterwards) and her position as the glue in the middle of the play was subtle but poignant.
