One of the finest works of one of the greatest Twentieth century dramatists, The Glass Menagerie was Tennessee Williams' first Broadway success.
Tom, a young would-be poet, struggles to support his overbearing and sentimental mother and his delicate, obsessive sister. The subject of this deeply touching, autobiographical play is the most fragile of all human emotions - hope.

Founded in 1970 by Frank Dunlop & Sir Laurence Olivier as a theatre where a younger generation of theatre artists could stage productions of classic plays. Tickets were sold at a lower price than other London theatres and seating was unreserved to make productions more accessible. These are principles maintained at the Young Vic since it became independent of Olivier's Royal National Theatre in 1974.
'Magnificent... a revival that is as conceptually fresh as it is emotionally devastating.'
'A deeply felt, beautifully judged production of a masterpiece.'
