Discover Philip Ridley's modern classic newly adapted for a 2023 audience.

Leaves of Glass Information

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.

Following its critically acclaimed run at Soho Theatre premiere in 2007, Philip Ridley’s four-hander is a gripping narrative of memory, manipulation, and power - now regarded as a modern classic - returns for the first time in 16 years with a new production by longtime collaborators, Lidless Theatre.

Praise for original production:

★★★★ 'It is like a shard of glass plunged straight into the heart' The Guardian
'A brooding and eventually bruising emotional weight… a ferocity of feeling' The Stage

★★★★ 'Lucid and restrained. The writing is packed with meaning. Listen hard. Every word matters' Sunday Times
