Tonight Nuffield Theatre premieres its production of The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams.
A lyrical portrait of a family running from reality first performed in 1944, the play explores the human capacity for hope against all the odds.
After two hours’ sleep, coffee and cigarettes, Tom’s back at the warehouse. At home, his mother Amanda despairs. Her daughter Laura is worryingly single and growing more strange by the day.
When Tom brings a work colleague home for dinner, Laura realises she knows him well.Designed by Ultz (Olivier Award-winner, Jerusalem) and directed by Nuffield’s Director, Samuel Hodges, The Glass Menagerie is considered one of the great plays 20th century plays.
The Glass Menagerie will run at Nuffield from tonight until October 31.
