The Glass Menagerie

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 Desperate to find the withdrawn Laura a husband, Amanda cajoles her son into bringing home a gentleman caller.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!

    I travelled from Glasgow after seeing a review in the Times recommending the play. I thoroughly enjoyed it and all the actors were equally good. I love Tennessee Williams so I'm biased!

  • Good fun but sad realistic ending

    Playing to a packed matinee , the performance was excellent. Most annoying thing was neighbours on mobiles shining brightly!!! They should be confiscated and fined before being returned to owner! Most disruptive to the whole scene!

    This is a revelationary production of Tennessee Williams beautiful memory play. I have seen gritty productions before which all the emphasis on Tom giving him great reasons for his decisions at the end of the play. Thanks to perceptive direction and outstanding acting this production is a tender and humane depiction of a Mother's desperate love for her children and her hopes for a positive future for them. Tom's motives for his actions become more ambiguous. His sister takes on a tragic hue. Her "Gentleman Caller" almost a genuinely sad character forgoing love for duty. What marvellous acting. What beautiful design. Highly recommended!

    The performance was too quiet. We could hear the train passing which spoilt the performance. I was in row K. Had I been any further back I would have been asleep. The venue was too big. The acting was good but too quiet. Very disappointing.
