Broken Glass

Director Richard Beecham Designer Simon Kenny Lighting Designer Ben Ormerod Sound Designer, Composer & Musical Direction Ed Lewis

Brooklyn, 1938. Phillip and Sylvia Gellburg are a married couple living increasingly separate lives. 

Phillip is obsessed with getting ahead, in a real estate company where he is the only Jew.

Sylvia is disturbed by news of Kristallnacht from Germany.  In a single night, the Nazis destroyed thousands of Jewish homes and businesses, smashing windows and burning synagogues.  Haunted by these images, she becomes ill and is unable to move.

Phillip takes her to see the popular and attractive Dr Harry Hyman, whose ‘talking cure’ has unexpected consequences.

Arthur Miller is one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, author of Death of A Salesman, A View From The Bridge, The Crucible and All My Sons.  Broken Glass was first performed in 1994. It received the 1995 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play and was nominated for a Tony.  Our production marks the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht.
