The Glass Menagerie

BY TENNESSEE WILLIAMS

Winner of the New York Drama Critic’s Circle award for Best American Play, The Glass Menagerie is the timeless family drama that thrust Tennessee Williams into the international spotlight.

Amanda Wingfield only wants the best for her two children, Tom and Laura. With her socialite adolescence behind her, Amanda puts all her energies into pushing her children up the social and financial ladder from which she has fallen. Shadowed by the absence of a father, they struggle to break free from their mother’s imposing ways.

Clare Watson (York, The Torrents) exquisitely directs Tennessee Williams’ most vulnerable and semi-autobiographical play. Fuelled by pity and duty, burdened by love and hate, the Wingfields are one of theatre’s most iconic and heartbreakingly real families.

This tour de force performance by much loved Mandy McElhinney (Wakefield, Love Child, Paper Giants) is your grand night out at the theatre.

“An astounding self-portrait by the great Tennessee Williams, this play is full of humour and heartbreak. The Glass Menagerie piques our nostalgia and arouses our yearning. It’s like we’re watching ourselves on VHS in a time when we were a little more glamorous and much more devil-may-care.”
Clare Watson, Director.

“Haunting in its beauty and not to be missed.” Broadway World.

Presented through special arrangement with The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee.
