Following the success of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child – Parts One and Two, director John Tiffany returns to the West End with his internationally acclaimed production of The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. The production will play for a limited season at the Duke Of York’s Theatre from 26 January to 29 April 2017. Tickets are on sale now.
Time is the longest distance between two places.
A domineering mother. A daughter lost in a world of her own. A son determined to leave.
Former Southern Belle, Amanda Wingfield, is desperate to find a husband for her fragile daughter Laura, whilst son Tom dreams of breaking free from their faded St. Louis home. But will the long-awaited ‘gentleman caller’ fulfil or shatter the family’s delicate dreams?
The Glass Menagerie will star Cherry Jones returning to her Tony Award-nominated Broadway role of Amanda Wingfield. She will appear with fellow Edinburgh International Festival cast members Michael Esper (Tom) and Kate O’Flynn (Laura). Brian J Smith reprises his Tony Award-nominated Broadway role as the Gentleman Caller.
Transferring the Duke Of York’s Theatre into Tennessee Williams’ St Louis of the 1930’s is Bob Crowley (set and costumes Design), Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), Paul Arditti (Sound Design) and Nico Muhly (Music). The production also reunites John Tiffany with Steven Hoggett who will provide movement for the production.
