The Glass Menagerie

Landing in the West End via Broadway and a spell at the Edinburgh Festival, The Glass Menagerie is a tour de force of a play that put Tennessee Williams’ name on the map. We are introduced to our surroundings by Tom Wingfield (Michael Esper) who frames the action as a ‘memory play’, that’s to say the audience is always acutely aware that we are taken back to the past by a character who, from the future, still holds contempt and misgivings for who and what he has left behind.
