The Glass MenagerieFrench stage and screen actress Isabelle Huppert stars in Tennessee Williams's The Glass Menagerie, his masterpiece about loneliness, lost dreams and illusions, directed by Belgian theatre director Ivo van Hove. A UK premiere, this co-production between the Barbican and Odeon-Theatre de l'Europe is performed in French with English surtitles. Told from the point of view of the narrator, Tom Wingfield, the story introduces us to aspiring poet Tom who works in a factory as the main provider, slipping away to the movies whenever he can. He works in a shoe warehouse to support his mother, Amanda, originally from a genteel Southern family, and sister, Laura. She's a fragile, self-conscious soul who never leaves home, contenting herself with a collection of tiny glass animals. The arrival of a 'gentleman caller' one evening releases ghosts of the past.
