News: Amy Adams to make West End debut in The Glass Menagerie

Amy Adams is set to make her West End debut as Amanda Wingfield in a new production of Tennessee Williams’s The Glass Menagerie. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the play will arrive at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 23 May 2022.

The show will also star Paul Hilton (The Inheritance, Lady Macbeth, A Very British Scandal), Tom Glynn-Carney (The Ferryman, Dunkirk), Lizzie Annis and Victor Alli.

The Glass Menagerie will mark the debut production from Second Half Productions, co-founded by Herrin, Alan Stacey and Rob O’Rahilly, with the show running for 14 weeks only.

Award-winning director Jeremy Herrin’s bold new staging is set to explore the fragility and fallibility of memory, starring the six-time Academy Award nominated and two-time Golden Globe-winning actress Amy Adams.

The Glass Menagerie is designed by Vicki Mortimer with lighting design by Paule Constable and video design by Ash J Woodward

Amy Adams said: “I am so honoured and excited to be a part of bringing The Glass Menagerie to the stage in the West End! I have always felt a strong pull towards the work of Tennessee Williams and to this deeply personal story. I am so grateful to be working with the brilliant Jeremy Herrin and with all of the talented cast and creative team. I look forward to the shared experience of theatre. See you in 2022!”
