Shattered by her husband’s abandonment, Amanda Wingfield’s 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.
Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the production will see Amy Adams making her West End debut starring as Amanda Wingfield. The cast also includes: Paul Hilton (The Inheritance, Lady Macbeth, A Very British Scandal), Tom Glynn-Carney (The Ferryman, Dunkirk), Lizzie Annis and Victor Alli will complete the cast.
The creative team behind the production is set to include: designs by Vicki Mortimer with lighting design by Paule Constable and video design by Ash J Woodward.
The Glass Menagerie will play at the Duke of York’s Theatre from the 23rd May until the 28th August 2022. To book tickets click here.
