The Glass Menagerie Theatre breaks

About the show

Time is the longest distance between two places.

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?

What to expect from The Glass Menagerie

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 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.

Interesting facts about The Glass Menagerie

Playwright Tennessee Williams struggled to make a living from his craft during the 30s and early 40s until the smash hit of The Glass Menagerie in 1944, followed by perhaps his best known work, A Streetcar Named Desire, in 1947
The Glass Menagerie is heavily autobiographical, with the character Laura based on Williams’ sister, Rose. He later assigned half of Summer and Smoke’s royalties (1948) for her care, and went on to part with most of his estate to ensure her care until she died in 1996
