One of the finest works of one of the greatest Twentieth Century dramatists, The Glass Menagerie was Tennessee Williams’ first great Broadway success.
Tom, a young would-be poet, struggles to support his overbearing and sentimental mother and his delicate, obsessive sister. The subject of this deeply touching, autobiographical play is the most fragile of all human emotions – hope.
‘Magnificent… a revival that is as conceptually fresh as it is emotionally devastating.’ The Independent
‘A deeply felt, beautifully judged production of a masterpiece.’ Daily Telegraph

A Young Vic/Wiener Festwochen/Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen co-production “Sweet Nothings” by Arthur Schnitzler in a new version by David Harrower co-commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre from 01 March – 10 April 2010.
Four young people risk everything in a tragic game of love, lust and adultery.
Direct from the New York Metropolitan Opera House, La Scala, Milan and the Vienna Festival, superstar director Luc Bondy arrives at the Young Vic this spring.
Though he is one of the most distinguished directors in Europe, Bondy’s UK productions are very rare. His last, Cruel & Tender at the Young Vic, was critically acclaimed, receiving a host of 5-star reviews.
After two Arthur Schnitzler productions at Vienna’s Burg Theatre, Bondy is widely regarded as the finest director of this great Viennese playwright – one of theatre’s first great explorers of the dark side of sexuality.
‘Bondy’s subtle, finely detailed stagecraft slowly brews a heady mix of shock and awe.’ The Observer on Hercules, 2006
‘A knockout production brilliantly directed by Luc Bondy. I don’t expect to see a more powerful play this year.’ Daily Telegraph on Cruel & Tender, 2005
