The Glass Menagerie

The Glass Menagerie

Synopsis

'The past turns into everlasting regret if you don’t plan for it.'

In a shabby apartment, a troubled sister and her brother pick a path through the wreckage of a broken family home. Their mother is desperate to marry Laura off – so when Tom brings home a suitor for her, hopes are high that they may have found the man of their dreams. All this, Tom remembers – but memory is fragile, and the clarity of truth can be clouded over time.

Hot on the heels of his Stage Debut Award-winning Royal Exchange production of HOBSON’S CHOICE, Atri Banerjee returns with a devastating new take on the masterpiece that made Tennessee Williams’ name. Intimate and intense, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is a domestic play wrestling with global questions as, like Tom, Laura and Amanda, our world stands on the brink of change.
