This is the West End debut of one of the greatest actresses. Amy Adams stars in a memory play by Tennessee Williams, with the director Jeremy Herrin ('Wolf Hall', 'This House', and 'People, Places and Things').

Since John Tiffany's take on this play in 2017, there has been no London revival until today. Tennessee Williams' 1944 classic was a hit.

The story takes place in Tom's recollections. In older plays, the role of Tom was played by the same actor, but in Herrin's version, Paul Hilton plays the older Tom, while Tom Glynn-Carney plays the younger Tom's part.

About The Glass Menagerie

What is The Glass Menagerie?

The Glass Menagerie follows the story of Amanda Wingfield. After her husband leaves, Amanda's focus becomes her future comfort and security. She wants the best for her children, Laura and Tom.

However, Amanda Wingfield's determination soon collides with her children's dreams. Tom feels trapped in St Louis, and Laura is forced by her mother to think about her future.

This makes Amanda's relationship with her daughter fragile while crushing Laura's thin self-esteem. Amanda tries to find a husband for her daughter, and that crosses the fine line between dignity and desperation. The suffocating love of Amanda leaves both her children emotionally scarred.

The name of the play reflects Laura's life. A  glass menagerie is a group of small, glass animals.

It is the West End debut of Amy Adams, the six-time Academy Award-nominated actress. Jeremy Herrin directs the play.

The Glass Menagerie will run at the Duke of York's Theatre. Herrin has been known to direct a lot of hits, with many awards both on Broadway and the West End. James Graham's 'This House' (National Theatre and West End) and 'People, Places, and Things' (National Theatre, West End, and New York) make up his impressive resume.

Lizzie Annis and Victor Alli are also part of the cast of this new production, with Paul Hilton and Tom Glynn-Carney. The Glass Menagerie, London, is going to make you fall in love with the cast and the creative team that has brought this performance to life. Book The Glass Menagerie tickets now.
