The Glass

By Tennessee Williams  Director Eamon Flack

  • Venue National tour
  • Dates 3 May – 5 June 2016

    Winner of the 2015 Helpmann Award for Best Play and Best Female Actor (Pamela Rabe), our acclaimed production of The Glass Menagerie goes on tour to Canberra Theatre Centre, Geelong Performing Arts Centre and Melbourne’s Malthouse.

    Tennessee Williams invented a new kind of theatre with The Glass Menagerie. It introduced the first in a line of legendary Williams women – towering dreamers fighting for their lives – and its formal inventiveness paved the way for the great American dream plays like Death of a Salesman and Angels in America. It is also a scathing self-portrait of the young Tennessee: homosexual, poet, liar, truth-teller.

    Amanda Wingfield is a single mother. Her son Tom works in a warehouse, her daughter Laura is studying to become a secretary. The three of them live in a small apartment pent up with fantasies and urges and rage and wounded tenderness. It is not a magnificent existence, but each of them has one true idea for a better life. Enter the Gentleman Caller…

    Eamon Flack directs Luke Mullins (Angels in America), the great Pamela Rabe, Harry Greenwood and Rose Riley in this stunning production.
