Stage and screen star Isabelle Huppert plays Amanda in Tennessee Williams’s bewitching masterpiece about loneliness, lost dreams and illusions, which is directed by Ivo van Hove.

Aspiring poet Tom works in a factory as the main provider, slipping away to the movies whenever he can to escape his mother’s oppressive nostalgia. Laura, a fragile, self-conscious soul never leaves home, contenting herself with a collection of tiny glass animals. The arrival of a ‘gentleman caller’ one evening holds the promise of so much more ...
Intense and elusive, The Glass Menagerie was the first hit for Williams on Broadway in 1945 and his most openly autobiographical drama.
