The Glass Menagerie

The Glass Menagerie

New production of Tennessee Williams's play to star Amy Adams in the West End

Overview

Six-time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams (American Hustle, Vice) makes her West End debut in a new production of Tennessee Williams's celebrated memory play, The Glass Menagerie.

Directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall Trilogy, People Places and Things, This House), the stellar cast is completed by Paul Hilton (The Inheritance, Lady Macbeth, A Very British Scandal), Tom Glynn-Carney (The Ferryman, Dunkirk), Lizzie Annis and Victor Alli.

Amanda Wingfield is shattered by her husband’s abandonment - her steely focus remains locked on her future security and that of her children, Tom and Laura. Her determination collides with her children’s dreams and ambitions. While Tom feels trapped by his life in St Louis, the pressure Amanda forces upon her daughter to secure her future is crushing both their relationship and Laura’s fragile self-esteem. As attentions quickly turn to securing a suitor for Laura, the fine thread that connects dignity to desperation is pulled taut.

‘Memory is seated predominantly in the heart’ – Tennessee Williams.
