Why See City of Glass?

A detective story with a twist

Paul Auster's landmark novella from his New York Trilogy gets the stage treatment courtesy of Duncan Macmillan, the man behind last year's Olivier nominated powerhouse, People Places and Things. Telling the story of an unraveling mystery, City of Glass begins as a seductive film-noir thriller that slowly segues into something a lot more disorientating for protagonist Daniel Quinn as the solitary crime writer finds himself right at the heart of one of his own stories.

Taking its cue not only from Auster's work but the graphic novel by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli, this brand new work from Tony winning company 59 Productions will bring Quinn's world to life through a mix of illusions, magic and dazzling technical effects. Don't miss what is sure to be one of the season's most intriguing shows!
