"Halfway between memory, dream and something entirely imagined. Heart-wrenching." - The Telegraph

Tennessee Williams' finest works in London's finest theatres

A poetic portrayal of a family on the brink of change, The Glass Menagerie takes audiences through a breath-taking journey of self-discovery. 

Inhaling too many cigarettes and spending too much time at the local cinema is how Tom copes with his suffocating home life. His sister, Laura, prefers to withdraw into her records and collection of glass animals. 

But their mother, Amanda, harbours dreams for them far beyond the stained carpet in their bedrooms and the yellowed wallpaper in the hallway. She believes they're destined for better things, and will grasp at any opportunity to get it for them. 

When Tom brings home a potential partner-for-life, Amanda takes the chance to intertwine their lives and change their fortunes and futures forever.

This intimate and intense play explores the complex web of love and loyalty that binds families together.

"Astonishing refresh upturns a delicate classic," - The Guardian
