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).

THE GLASS MENAGERIE TRANSFERS TO WEST END (26 OCTOBER 2016)

John Tiffany returns to the West End for the first time since the international critical hit Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts One and Two, to bring his acclaimed production of The Glass Menagerie to the Duke of York's Theatre for a limited season.

Following its premiere in 2013 at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University, a multi Tony Award-nominated run on Broadway at the Booth Theater and a European premiere at this year's Edinburgh International Festival, John Tiffany's fresh staging of Tennessee Williams' classic play will begin previews on 26 January 2017. Its limited season will continue until 29 April 2017.

Cherry Jones will reprise her Tony Award-nominated Broadway role as Amanda Wingfield, with fellow Edinburgh International Festival cast members Michael Esper (Tom - starring this autumn in another London transfer, David Bowie musical Lazarus- and Kate O'Flynn (Laura). Brian J. Smith reprises his Tony Award-nominated Broadway role as the Gentleman Caller.

Alongside this stellar cast, the Duke of York's Theatre will be transformed into Tennessee Williams' St Louis of the 1930's by a universally acclaimed creative team. The Glass Menagerie features movement by the Olivier Award-winning Steven Hoggett, who has collaborated with John Tiffany on numerous previous productions including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Once and Let the Right One In. It is designed by seven-time Tony Award-winner Bob Crowley, lighting design is by six-time Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz with sound design from Olivier and Tony Award-winning Paul Arditti with music by celebrated composer Nico Muhly.
