The Lyceum’s Spring 2008 season has kicked-off with Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, directed by Jemima Levick and running from 11 January to 9 February.
First staged in Chicago in 1944, Menagerie… is set in St Louis, Missouri during the Great Depression and deals with the troubled relationship between an aging mother, Amanda Wingfield, and her shy daughter Laura Wingfield, as told by the son and brother, Tom Wingfield, who is supposedly relating events from memory.
The Lyceum version stars Barbara Marten, Nicola Harrison, Antony Eden and Joseph Arkley. The team behind the production have produced some great promotional “trailers” which I recommend taking some time out to watch. Here’s hoping they continue this for the rest of the season.
