Amy Adams to star in Tennessee Williams’s THE GLASS MENAGERIE at Duke Of York’s Theatre

Six time Academy Award nominated actress Amy Adams will make her West End debut in a new production of Tennessee Williams’s celebrated memory play, The Glass Menagerie for 14 weeks at the  Duke of York’s Theatre from 23 May until 28 August 2022.

Award-winning director Jeremy Herrin’s bold new staging explores the fragility and fallibility of memory in Williams’s semi-autobiographical masterpiece.

Amy Adams takes on the role of one of Williams’s most iconic matriarchs Amanda Wingfield, a former Southern Belle living precariously with her two children, Tom and Laura, in a space between past and present. Tony award-nominee Paul Hilton and Tom Glynn-Carney will both play Tom – at different stages of the character’s life – with newcomers Lizzie Annis and Victor Alli as Laura and The Gentleman Caller.

Amy Adams has won two Golden Globes and has been nominated for six Academy Awards. Amy is appearing in the film adaptation of the Tony Award winning musical, Dear Evan Hansen, alongside Ben Platt. Universal will release the film on September 24, 2021. Amy is currently in production on Disenchanted, the sequel to her 2007 blockbuster hit, Enchanted, for Disney+. She is reprising her role of Giselle and also executive producing the film. It is expected to be released in 2022.
