Memory is seated predominantly in the heart

TennessEe Williams

Amy Adams, six-time Academy Award nominee, makes her West End debut in a bold re-imagining of Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece from acclaimed director, Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall Trilogy, People Places and Things, Best of Enemies).


In this ambitious new production of The Glass Menagerie, the story of a son recalling his stifled upbringing in St Louis becomes a powerful meditation on the fragility of memory. 

Devastated by her husband’s abandonment, Amanda Wingfield (Amy Adams) obsesses over the futures of her restless son, Tom (Tom Glynn-Carney – The Ferryman, Dunkirk), and emotionally vulnerable daughter, Laura (Lizzie Annis in her stage debut). Years later, through the fractured prism of memory, Tom (Paul HiltonThe Inheritance, Lady Macbeth, A Very British Scandal ) reflects on the crushing pressures placed on his sister to secure a suitor (Victor Alli), and the betrayal inflicted by his pursuit of freedom.
