Amy Adams to make West End stage debut

Amy Adams will make her London stage debut next May in a revival of The Glass Menagerie.

Adams will take on the role of matriarch Amanda Wingfield in Tennessee Williams’ play, which is set to open at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London on 23rd May 2022. It will run for 14 weeks.

Speaking about the role, 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!”

Adams will appear alongside Paul Hilton, Tom Glynn-Carney, Lizzie Annis and Victor Alli. Director Jeremy Herrin will slightly alter the text to allow Hilton and Glynn-Carney to play the same character, though the prism of time and memory.

Tickets are on sale now.
