Time Out says

The awesome Isabelle Huppert returns to the Barbican to star in Tennessee Williams’s dreamy and despairing memory play

The second Ivo van Hove production in the 2020 Barbican season sees the Belgian great tackle Tennessee Williams’s dreamy early masterpiece ‘The Glass Menagerie’. And his French-language production (aka ‘La Ménagerie de verre’) with the Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe boasts quite the star: the great Isabelle Huppert – herself no stranger to the Barbican – returns to play monstrously deluded matriarch Amanda, whose suffocating love has cursed her children: angry, gay Tom and painfully delicate Laura. 

Performed in English with French surtitles.
