How beautiful it is and how easily it can be broken.

After becoming a highly acclaimed production across the pond on Broadway, this Tony-winning revival of Tennessee Williams's classic play, The Glass Menagerie comes to London this Winter. Produced by the team behind Once and directed by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child's John Tiffany, this production has received considerable praise from even the most discerning Broadway critics, and won a 2014 Tony Award.

Starring iconic Broadway mainstay Cherry Jones as fading Southern Belle Amanda Wingfield alongside Michael Esper as Tom, Kate O'Flynn as Laura and Brian J. Smith as 'Gentleman Caller', the curtain will rise on 2nd of February at the Duke of York's Theatre for a strictly limited 13 week season.

what is it about?

Described as "epic and intimate", the play follows Amanda and her attempts to find a suitor for her daughter, Laura. Narrated by Tom, we watch as Tom brings home a work colleague whom Amanda and Laura both hope to be a potential match for Laura. Abandoned by their husband and father several years earlier though, both women find their own hopes and insecurities come to the fore as the evening plays out.
