The Glass Menagerie
The Glass Menagerie (2007) was a theatre production by The National Theatre, based on the play by Tennessee Williams. The production was performed in the theatre's venue Amfiscenen, The Amphi Stage.
It was directed by Sofia Jupither.
Kjersti Holmen interpreted the role of Amanda Wingfield. She had played the role of Laura Wingfield in the same play at Centralteatret in 1986.
Birgitte Larsen interpreted the role of Laura Wingfield. She received The Hedda Award 2007 in the best leading actress category for the role.
Thorbjørn Harr interpreted the rolf of Tom Wingfield.
The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to Birgitte Larsen:
"This year's winner is young. Not many years have passed since she graduated from her acting studies, but she already has, finely tuned and with an ear for the text, interpreted both classics like Euripides, Ibsen, Strindberg and Lorca, and contemporary playwrights such as Lars Norén and Jon Fosse. She gets the award for her interpretation of a shy, vulnerable young woman who doesn't master life. In this role she was intense, but quiet, heart-breaking, but void of sentimentality. The interpretation was excellent performing arts, and was experienced as pure theatre magic.
The best leading actress award goes to Birgitte Larsen for her interpretation of Laura Wingfield, in The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams at The National Theatre the spring of 2007."
Jan Gunnar Røise was nominated for The Hedda Award in the category of best supporting actor for the role of Jim.
