The Glass Menagerie

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

One of the finest works from one of the greatest Twentieth Century dramatists, this exquisite memory play comes to the Young Vic with a new score by Oscar and Golden Globe award-winning composer Dario Marianelli.

Joe Hill-Gibbins directs Tennesse Williams' early masterpiece. The Glass Menagerie was Williams' first great Broadway success.

It premiered in Chicago in 1944, before transferring to Broadway where it won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award.

Tom, a young would-be poet struggles to support his overbearing and sentimental mother and his delicate, obsessive sister.

The subject of this deeply touching, autobiographical play is the most fragile of all human emotions - hope.
