About The Glass Menagerie

Atri Banerjee‘s acclaimed reimagining of Tennessee William‘s The Glass Menagerie comes to London’s Alexandra Palace this spring!

The cast includes BAFTA nominee Geraldine Somerville (Cracker, Gosford Park, and the Harry Potter film series) reprising her acclaimed portrayal of Amanda Wingfield, who is joined by new cast members Kasper Hilton-Hille (Tom Wingfield), Zacchaeus Kayode (Jim O’Connor), and Natalie Kimmerling (Laura Wingfield).

Tom, the play’s narrator, 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.

Banerjee’s acclaimed production reimagines Williams‘ semi-autobiographical masterpiece, exploring the intimacy and intensity of the complex web of love and loyalty that binds families together.

Director Atri Banerjee said, “Theatre provides opportunities to explore time and memory in exciting and challenging ways. It’s a gift to revisit Williams’ classic and discover the new things it says about a world that’s dramatically changed in just the 18 months since we first opened in Manchester. I’m delighted to be reunited with Geraldine and to work with our new cast members to bring this story to life.”
