Alexandra tiptoes carefully through the palace corridors, turning sideways through doorways. Can it really be true, as she claims, that she has swallowed an entire piano made of glass? One that might shatter inside her at the slightest disturbance? A sort of tinkle… tinkle… splat!
Her father King Ludwig can do nothing to help. But when a young man Lucien arrives at the palace, suddenly anything seems possible…
Laced with dry humour, The Glass Piano will transport you to the 19th century House of Wittelsbach, where four characters, trapped by their situations, are prevented from fulfilling their dreams of love.
This accomplished play is directed by Max Key, who received an Olivier nomination for It Is Easy To Be Dead at Trafalgar Studios, described by Michael Billington as a “beautifully orchestrated production” in a five-star review for The Guardian.
