Tennessee Williams’ heart-rending masterpiece The Glass Menagerie comes to the Duke of York’s Theatre for just 13 weeks.
"Time is the longest distance between two places"
Following a multi Tony Award-nominated run on Broadway, Olivier and Tony Award-winning director John Tiffany (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts One & Two, Let the Right One In, Black Watch) revives his visionary staging of The Glass Menagerie, Williams' definitive masterwork about a family struggling to survive on hopes and dreams.
A domineering mother. A daughter lost in a world of her own. A son desperate to leave. Former Southern Belle Amanda Wingfield, played by Tony Award-winning Broadway icon Cherry Jones, enlists the help of son Tom (Michael Esper) to find a husband for her fragile daughter Laura (Kate O’Flynn). But will the long-awaited ‘gentleman caller’ (Brian J. Smith) fulfil or shatter the family’s delicate dreams?
