Olivier and Tony Award-winner John Tiffany brings his highly acclaimed Broadway production of The Glass Menagerie to the West End in 2017.
Tennessee Williams’ intense and heart-rending look at family life tells the story of domineering mother and former Southern Belle Amanda Wingfield, her writer son Tom and her recluse daughter Laura. Desperate to find the withdrawn Laura a husband, Amanda cajoles her son into bringing home a gentleman caller.
Starring Broadway superstar Cherry Jones as Amanda, Michael Esper as Tom, Kate O’Flynn as Laura and Brian J. Smith as the much-anticipated gentleman caller, The Glass Menagerie comes to London with a sensational, multi-award-winning creative team. Lauded for its psychological detail, its emotional power and its stylish evocation of 1930s St Louis, critics have hailed Tiffany’s production of this classic American play, calling it ‘theatre magic’.
The Glass Menagerie runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre for just 13 weeks. This five-star production is not to be missed. Book your tickets today!
