First look production images have been released for Philip Ridley’s four-hander Leaves of Glass, a gripping narrative of memory, manipulation, and power – now regarded as a modern classic – which returns for the first time in 16 years with a new production by longtime collaborators, Lidless Theatre.
East London. 2023. Steven has always tried to be a good person. He works hard. He looks after his family. But, suddenly, everyone starts accusing him of things. His wife accuses him of being unfaithful. His mother accuses him of being coercive. And his brother, Barry, accuses him of…what exactly? Barry won’t say. Or can’t. Or perhaps…Steven hasn’t done anything at all.
Philip Ridley is one of the country’s greatest living playwrights. His first play,’ The Pitchfork Disney’, changed the course of British drama.
Leaves of Glass, directed by Max Harrison, will run at Park Theatre, London Thursday 11 May – Saturday 3 June. Leaves of Glass will then tour to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford (15 – 17 June) and Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre (10 – 16 July).
Leaves of Glass is directed by Max Harrison and stars Kacey Ainsworth, Katie Buchholz, Ned Costello and Joseph Potter.
