Description

In The Glass Imaginary, we improvise a brand-new play every evening inspired by the works of Tennessee Williams. Lush Southern accents, unrequited love, passionately requited love and inner turmoil all feature in this unique period piece. Set against the backdrop of the deep south, where everyone has a role to fulfil in life, we see characters who struggle to find their place. In 2022, when the world is again in turmoil and society seems unrecognisable, this piece takes on new meaning.
