The Glass Menagerie
Nominated for 7 Olivier Awards including Best Revival, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Set Design. Now is the time to see this stunning production.

Now open to rave reviews, following a multi Tony Award-nominated run on Broadway and sold out season at Edinburgh International Festival, Olivier and Tony Award-winning director John Tiffany (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Let the Right One In, Black Watch) revives his visionary staging of Tennessee Williams' heart-rending masterpiece about a family struggling to survive on hopes and dreams.

'Beautifully played. Cherry Jones gives a revelatory performance'

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 star 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?
