Officially opening tonight, take a look at the production images that have been released of Jeremy Herrin’s production.
Second Half Productions have released brand new production images of the cast for its inaugural production – a revival of Tennessee Williams’s celebrated play, which will run at The Duke of York’s Theatre until the 27th August.
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.
The production’s cast is led by six-time Academy Award nominated and two-time Golden Globe winning actress Amy Adams as Amanda Wingfield. She is joined in the production by Paul Hilton and Tom Glynn-Carney who both play Tom – at different stages of the character’s life – with Lizzie Annis as Laura and Victor Alli as Jim O’Connor.
The Glass Menagerie is designed by Vicki Mortimer with lighting design by Paule Constable, video design by Ash J Woodward and is cast by Jessica Ronane CDG. Completing the creative team are costume designer Edward K. Gibbon, composer and sound designer Nick Powell, and design associate Choy-Ping Clarke-Ng.
This is the debut production from Second Half Productions, a new entertainment company founded by Jeremy Herrin, Alan Stacey and Rob O’Rahilly, creating innovative work by world-leading artists for stage and screen, breathing new and unexpected life into classic stories and championing extraordinary writing from new and established voices.
The Glass Menagerie will play at the Duke of York’s Theatre until the 27th August 2022. To book tickets click here.
