A domineering mother. A daughter lost in a world of her own. A son desperate to leave. Former Southern Belle Amanda Wingfield, played by Tony Award-winning Broadway icon Cherry Jones, enlists the help of son Tom (Michael Esper) to find a husband for her fragile daughter Laura (Kate O'Flynn). But will the long-awaited ‘gentleman caller’ (Brian J. Smith) fulfil or shatter the family’s delicate dreams?

A universally acclaimed creative team bring 1930’s St Louis stylishly to life. With movement by Olivier Award-winning Steven Hoggett, set and costume design by multi Tony Award-winner Bob Crowley, lighting design by multi Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz, sound design from Olivier and Tony Award-winning Paul Arditti, music by celebrated composer Nico Muhly and casting by Jim Carnahan CSA, this is a stunning production of Tennessee Williams’ heart-breaking classic.

Donna Kiernan9th May

I really enjoyed the play and was very impressed by the excellent acting by all characters.

Maria Oberstadt2nd May

wonderful play - great actors

Nyree Hughes30th April

I particularly enjoyed the portrayal of the daughter, Laura.

Richard Wallace30th April

I have seen numerous productions of this show and this is the best.

Linda Payne28th April

Enjoyed the production very much - Tennessee Williams was such a great playwright and this was the first time I had seen The Glass Menagerie. Excellent seats in Row C of the stalls made us feel really involved.

Josephine Wayne28th April

II thought the production, sets and clothes were good and very evocative of the times. However, I couldn't hear a word that the actress who plays Laura said. This is crucial as the play depends on the dialogue. Not much else happens, i was in the Upper Circle and am a a bit okder now and thought maybe it was my hearing. My friend had the same trouble. We spkke to two young drama students afterwards and they had the same problem. I think you ought to try to rectify this. We thought the the acgress moved well and portrayed her character well but kept wishing she would speak up.Difficult as her character was shy and nervous but one should be able tomhear what she was saying.

Richard Franklin26th April

Cherry Jones too much overacting "Look at me, I'm a great actress". First act too much shouting, hysterical. You can show all the anger and frustrations of the character in a much lower key with the motto less is more. Compensated for is Act 2 with the very moving scene between Laura and the gentleman but then the spell is broken by the final screaming. A great play but misinterpreted.

Brian26th April

A disappointing performance with rather poor acting all round. The second half was better

Ruth Jackson24th April

Well staged. Brother character was good. Mother character was stiff, said every line the same, and terrible with the others. We left atinterval, and we love this play.

PAUL WESTCOTT23rd April

It was an extremely well-acted performance of a brilliant play

Thierry Margris23rd April

Excellent and good adaptation

Chris Atkin22nd April

Difficult to hear from the rear of the stalls (row N) so disappointed and some of the was dialogue was lost. Otherwise production was excellent.
