‘Arthur Miller’s 1994 play towers over the dismal lowlands of current West End theatre like a majestic mountain peak… overwhelmingly moving’ The Guardian

‘Iqbal Khan’s production deserves all the praise that it won last year at the Tricycle.’ The Times

Broken Glass is a rich and deeply-felt drama and one that richly deserves to thrive.’ The Telegraph

A sell-out season at the Tricycle last Autumn and the critics said:

 ‘Extraordinarily moving… near flawless’ The Daily Telegraph

 ‘Mesmerising…grips like a thriller. A rich evening’ The Times

 ‘Quite an evening… Highly recommended.’ Evening Standard

“The acting throughout this unmissable, mighty drama is flawless, and the jagged, melancholy mood and terrible tension of the piece are brilliantly maintained” Mail on Sunday

 ‘A very fine production by Iqbal Khan, crowned by a superb performance from Antony Sher’ Financial Times

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.
