A domineering mother. A daughter lost in a world of her own. A son desperate to leave.

Former Southern Belle Amanda Wingfield enlists the help of son Tom to find a husband for her fragile daughter Laura. But will the long-awaited ‘gentleman caller’ fulfil or shatter the family’s delicate dreams?

Tiffany revives his visionary staging of Williams’ heart-rending masterpiece about a family struggling to survive on hopes and dreams in 1930s St Louis. Jones reprises her Tony-winning lead performance.

“Delicately wrought and, when it reaches breaking point, quite shattering... Beautifully played... Jones: revelatory.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“Stunning... An extraordinary, dreamlike feel, halfway between hope and terror, innocence and despair, nostalgia and obliteration”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Tiffany sews The Glass Menagerie tightly into its historical context with illuminating results... Shattering.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“The pain and the humour of Williams’s writing shine through by dint of three splendid performances... Jones is magnificent.”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“Exquisitely lyrical... Tiffany’s production casts a greater, more shiver-making spell than most... Jones is perfect.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Tiffany brings some of the same illusionist magic to this heartbreaking story that he created for the Harry Potter plays. ”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“[O’Flynn] pulls a tremulous vitality from what seemed to be complete blankness... Swims beautifully between realism and dream.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“O’Flynn: affecting... Muhly’s incidental music endorses the peculiar spell cast by this fine and authoritative production.”

Arts Desk (other reviewers)

“Jones gives a fine turn... Williams still leaves you with an unremitting sense of misery... Gloomy.”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)
