The Glass Menagerie

When it comes to shows that have played a big role in shaping the cultural landscape of the 20th century, the work of Tennessee Williams is up there at the top. The writer of gems like Cat On A Hot Tin Roof scored many acclaimed hits and his work always attracts well-deserved attention when it is restaged around the world.

Most recently this was demonstrated with the successful revival of The Glass Menagerie on Broadway, with John Tiffany directing Cherry Jones and others in an awards-nominated event. So now that this production is set for the Duke of York’s Theatre in London’s West End, you know that theatregoers are going to take notice.

The story centres on the character of Amanda Wingfield and her children Tom and Laura. Set in St Louis in the 1930s we observe this long ago event in Tom’s life in which Amanda decided she needed to find Laura, who has debilitating shyness, a man. She asked Tom to find someone to invite to dinner and he responded with the Gentleman Caller Jim, with the audience witnessing how events transpire.

The play dates back to 1944 when it was first staged in Chicago and propelled Tennessee Williams into the spotlight, allowing him to go on to pen classics like Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, A Streetcar Named Desire and Orpheus Descending, amongst others. It has stood the test of time and continues to draw an audience.

This time around these audiences will get to experience the work of Cherry Jones, who returns to the role of Amanda and shows London theatregoers how she has managed to be held in such esteem on the other side of the Atlantic. The multi-Tony Award-winner has appeared in a wealth of Broadway shows and has also made an impression in television shows like 24.

For The Glass Menagerie she stars alongside Michael Esper as Tom, Kate O’Flynn as Laura and Brian J Smith as Jim, the Gentleman Caller.

So witness how the work of Tennessee Williams shaped the cultural landscape of the 20th century as The Glass Menagerie runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre from Thursday 2nd February 2017 (previews from Thursday 26th January 2017).
