Directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall Trilogy, People Places and Things, Best of Enemies) this new production of Tennessee Williams’ celebrated memory play comes to the Duke of York’s Theatre for a limited 14-week run.
With performances from Paul Hilton (The Inheritance, Lady Macbeth, A Very British Scandal), Tom Glynn-Carney (The Ferryman, Dunkirk), Lizzie Annis (The Witcher: Blood Origin) and Victor Alli (Death on the Nile) alongside Adams (Dear Evan Hansen, Enchanted), The Glass Menagerie features an award-winning cast.
Though devastated by her husband’s abandonment, Amanda Wingfield remains committed to the dream of building a good life for her children, Tom and Laura. However, this belief soon opposes her children’s own wants and ambitions.
Tom cannot help but feel suffocated by his life in St Louis, and Laura is close to shattering under the pressure from her mother, who believes that to ensure her daughter’s future, she must find her a suitable husband. As tensions build, the fine thread that connects dignity to desperation is pulled to breaking point.
See the story unfold with The Glass Menagerie tickets at London’s Duke of York Theatre.
Duke of York's Theatre
The Duke of York’s Theatre opened in 1892, then named the Trafalgar Square Theatre, and was renamed to its current name in 1895 to honour the future King George V. The theatre has housed acclaimed productions since, such as King Lear, and played host to many famous names, including Sir Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, Michael Gambon and Jeremy Irons.
