“Extraordinarily moving… the acting is superb” The Daily Telegraph

“A superlatively acted production… Highly recommended.” Evening Standard

Broken Glass is an Olivier award-winning drama which tells the story of Phillip and Sylvia Gellburg, a New York couple living in Brooklyn in 1938.

Phillip, obsessed with work and his own desire to assimilate, has little time for his wife, but when Sylvia suddenly becomes paralysed after reading newspaper reports of Kristallnacht in Germany, Dr. Harry Hyman is called in. As he gets closer to the source of Sylvia’s peculiar affliction, a relationship develops that could have devastating consequences on the family, and themes of guilt, personal tragedy and love start to unfold.

Cast includes Anthony Sher, Tara Fitzgerald, Caroline Loncq, Brian Protheroe, Suzan Sylvester, Stanley Townsend and Laura Moody.

Creatives include Iqbal Khan (Director), Mike Britton (Designer), Matthew Eagland (Lighting Designer) and Ed Borgnis (Sound Designer).
