The Glass Menagerie

11th to 26th March 2016

Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company presents-

The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
Director- Giles Croft

Designer- Tim Meacock
Lighting Designer- Mark Howland
Sound Designer- Adam P McCready

One of the most powerful plays of the 20th century, The Glass Menagerie is a tale of love, loss and the disparate hopes and dreams of a family at odds.

An evocative and deeply personal play, heartfelt and passionate, from one of the 20th Century’s most celebrated playwrights, Tennessee Williams. The Glass Menagerie is seen through the memories of Tom Wingfield, a poet and a dreamer. Constrained by his life working in a warehouse and his tenement apartment, he rebels against the strictures of his controlling mother, Amanda. He escapes through the movies, fulfilling his dreams through the Hollywood greats of the 1930s.

Amanda lives by her charm and the steely gentility of her Deep Southern roots, her purpose centred on finding a gentleman caller for her shy and reclusive daughter. But Laura has long since shunned the real world for one of fantasy and escapism – her menagerie of glass animals.

Starring Susannah Harker (Pride & Prejudice), Daniel Donskoy (BBC Four’s The Detectorists), and Chris New, (Weekend), The Glass Menagerie is the second main stage show of Nottingham Playhouse’s Spring/Summer 2016 season.

This year, Nottingham Playhouse is part of a consortium of regional theatres across the UK, who will be putting disabled artists and audiences at the centre of their programmes, to help the mainstreaming of disability arts and culture. During the ambitious six-year project, called Ramps on the Moon, with the first three years funded by Arts Council England, artists will be integrated into casts in a variety of ways, such as using sign language, screen projections and live audio descriptions. Each of the theatres involved will also reach out and develop disabled audiences within their own communities.

Giles Croft, Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse, said: “When programming this season we looked at how we could build towards the first production of The Ramps on the Moon project. In the casting of Amy Trigg in The Glass Menagerie, a brilliant young actress who happens to be a wheelchair user, we are marking the start of a new approach to casting at Nottingham Playhouse, not only for our main stage work, but also within our Neville Studio too.”
