★★★★★ “Enthralling intensity” Whats On Stage

That’s the way it works in this family. Believe what you wanna believe. Twist this. Ignore the other. That’s how we survive.

Following its critically acclaimed Park Theatre in May 2023, Philip Ridley’s gripping four-hander about memory, manipulation, and power – now regarded as a modern classic – returns by popular demand by long time collaborators, Lidless Theatre. 

Leaves of Glass runs from 16 January 2024 until 10 February 2024 at Park Theatre London.

What's the story of Leaves of Glass?

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.
