The Glass Menagerie in London


Amy Adams

The Glass Menagerie previews at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 23rd May 2022 and is set to run for fourteen weeks. Amy Adams makes her West End debut as Amanda Wingfield in a new production directed by Jeremy Herrin, who co-founded Second Half Productions along with Alan Stacey and Rob O’Rahilly. Paul Hilton, Tom Glynn-Carney, Lizzie Annis and Victor Alli will also star in the drama, a genuine Tennessee Williams’ classic of a memory play.

The award-winning director Jeremy Herrin has created bold new staging for this fabulous drama, which cleverly explores the fragility of memory. This is Tennessee Williams’ hugely popular semi-autobiographical masterpiece, and the amazing six-time Academy Award nominated and two-time Golden Globe winning actress Amy Adams takes on the starring role. The talented Tony award-nominee Paul Hilton and Tom Glynn-Carney both play the character of Tom, each at a different stage in his life, and they’re joined by Lizzie Annis as Laura, and Victor Alli as The Gentleman Caller.

What's the plot of The Glass Menagerie?

Amanda Wingfield is a former Southern Belle. She is living precariously with her children, Tom and Laura, trapped in the gap between the past and the present. Jeremy Herrin has called Williams’ 1944 drama “one of the best plays ever written – and probably one of the hardest plays to do because it is so fragile and poetic”. He’s also a massive fan of Amy Adams, calling her “a class act” , a versatile performer with the nuanced approach needed to reveal the interior life of Amanda. And how about Amanda herself? She was described by Tennessee Williams as a woman of “great but confused vitality clinging frantically to another time and place”.

The plot? Amanda Wingfield is shattered when her husband abandons her. But she retains enough backbone to care about the future security of herself and her children, Tom and Laura. Sadly her ambitions don’t blend well with those of her progeny. Tom feels horribly trapped by his life in St Louis, and Amanda pressures Laura into creating a safe future for herself, making the girl feel crushed and bullied. As her mother’s attentions focus on finding a suitor for Laura, the gap between dignity and desperation widens.

Who is The Glass Menagerie for?

The Glass Menagerie is recommended for people who are old enough to appreciate the subtleties and seriousness of adult relationships.

Serviceable but nothing special

A serviceable production let down by the worst stage design I have ever seen.

Amazing acting!

While T. Williams has great plays, this one is not a particularly exciting story. However it was brought to life beautifully by the cast and the narrator. The photos / lights playing in the background also added to the story. Amazing performance!

good drama

I did not know the storyline but was able to follow what was a interesting family drama with ease, the performances were good with excellent sound and there was humour and poignant moments, as a performance with a small cast it was suited to the smaller theatre, I was slightly surprised to hear the rumble of underground trains and had initially thought this was a sound effect- one of the quirky things about London Theatre.

Excellent acting especially the mother

Great acting. The story was a little slow to my liking but that's a personal preference

An excellent theatrical performance

A brilliant change from mundane musicals. An extraordinary all- round performance from the entire cast with superbly portrayed character sketches. A treat for the discerning theatre-goer.

Superb performances - upper circle not for the talls

Originally had tickets for the upper circle (row F - Duke of York) but this would have been impossible for my 5'10 frame so we moved to the stalls which provided far greater leg room. Theatre got quite warm so definitely take a cold drink to your seat or you may find yourself dozing... Comfort sorted, the performances were superb. Some fantastic monologues delivered with perfect timing. The acting was excellent, casting perfect... another fantastic Tennessee Williams play brought to life by a passionate and committed cast.

Magical and captivating; profoundly moving

I loved the staging and the acting of this play; in my memory it is like a little gem, (especially seeing it from my seat high above). Noticing the moon under the stage and the reflection of the actors at the table beneath sent a thrill of recognition. Was it meant to refer to the main protagonist's reflections on his past? The story itself made a lesser impression on me then the way it was told. We are back in the protagonist's past as if it were the present when the loving anxious but domineering mother makes her son's life unbearable. Both he and the mother in their different ways try to rescue Laura, whom they both love, from uncertain future by finding her a husband who would look after her. When an unsuccessful attempt to find Laura a husband fails, the protagonist runs away. The moral dilemma involved in such an act is not emphasised; maybe it was an act of desperation similar to the nightly escapades to the "movies". The play seems topical despite the fact that it takes place in the 1930-ties America in showing the heavy burden, and the hopelessness, disability places on family members.

Outstanding Production

Exceptional acting in every role. I thought the gentleman caller scene was the best interpretation I have ever seen of this play and as an ex drama teacher I've seen a few!

Fabulous portrayal of claustrophobic atmosphere of Tennessee Williams play, superb acting. Superb production of a great play, really brought to life by first class character actors. Conveyed hope and despair, empathy and frustration in equal measure. There was a audible collective gasp from the audience at the pivotal moment. No negatives. Loved it!

Average performances and annoying patron snoring beside us. It took theater staff a long time to ask the patron to stop snoring.

I think the acting was good, but I felt the story wasn't really my cup of tea. The first half was boring and slow.

Class Menagerie

Enthralling, captivating and moving. The production demonstrated care, grace and sensitivity in all areas with a formidable ingenuity to portray an original adaptation. Williams' well constructed words were utilised brilliantly and sharp moments of clever dream like movement left the auditorium transgressed in a world cultivating deeper meaning and feeling than could otherwise be possible in more straight laced versions.
