BROKEN GLASS AT THE TRICYCLE IS NOW SOLD OUT. CLICK HERE TO BOOK TICKETS FOR PERFORMANCES AT THE VAUDEVILLE THEATRE, 14 SEPT – 10 DECEMBER.
A sell-out season last Autumn and the critics said:
“The acting throughout this unmissable, mighty drama is flawless, and the jagged, melancholy mood and terrible tension of the piece are brilliantly maintained”
Broken Glass, Miller’s Olivier award-winning drama, 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 troubles, 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).
