Atri Banerjee’s acclaimed production of Tennessee Williams' semi-autobiographical masterpiece, first seen at the Royal Exchange Theatre, stars Geraldine Somerville (Gosford Park, Harry Potter, Cracker) 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.
