1. A collection of wild animals kept in captivity for exhibition
2. A strange or diverse collection

In a tiny derelict flat, a voracious mother, her repressed daughter and flamboyant poet son live in squalor, nourished only by competitive manoeuvring and nostalgic fantasies. You recognise this family. They have the same lost dreams and drowned sorrows as your neighbour, uncle, stepbrother. They are caged animals, wild at heart, with the American Dream – capitalism and hedonism – oozing through the seams of their imaginative worlds.

Menagerie is a new production based on the extraordinary life and work of one of the giants of the American stage, Tennessee Williams. Daniel Schlusser Ensemble has built an exciting reputation for exploding the classics onto the contemporary stage with a unique sensibility and style. This award-winning company kicks off the inaugural Neon season with its most ambitious and potent work yet.

Contains coarse language and adult themes.
