FOLLOWING HIS SMASH-HIT PRODUCTION OF HOBSON’S CHOICE, ATRI BANERJEE RETURNS WITH A DEVASTATING NEW TAKE ON TENNESSEE WILLIAMS’ SEMI-AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL MASTERPIECE.


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

THE GLASS MENAGERIE is a poetic and bruising portrayal 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.
