Following the huge success of Hobson’s Choice at the Royal Exchange in 2019, Atri Banerjee returns to direct Tennessee Williams’ semi-autobiographical masterpiece, The Glass Menagerie.

Tom escapes a suffocating home life through cigarettes and long visits to the movies, and his sister, Laura, withdraws into her records and collection of glass animals. While, 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 change their fortunes.

Poetic and devastating, The Glass Menagerie tells the story of a family on the brink of change. Reimagined for the Exchange’s unique in-the-round theatre, this intimate and intense memory play explores the complex web of love, loyalty and trauma that binds families together.
