We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:

Atri Banerjee’s acclaimed production of Tennessee Williams’ semi-autobiographical masterpiece, first seen at the Royal Exchange Theatre, comes to Ally Pally Theatre, starring Geraldine Somerville (Gosford Park) as Amanda.

Tom escapes a suffocating home life through cigarettes and long visits to the movies while his sister, Laura, withdraws into her records and collection of glass animals. But their mother, Amanda, harbours dreams for them far beyond their shabby apartment. When Tom brings home a potential suitor for Laura, Amanda seizes the opportunity to try and change their fortunes forever.

The Glass Menagerie is a poetic portrayal of a family on the brink of change. This intimate and intense memory play explores the complex web of love and loyalty that binds families together.

Tremendous.’ – The Observer ★★★★ ‘Halfway between memory, dream and something entirely imagined.
