Presented by the Dukes and Red Ladder Theatre in association with Tamasha
By Nick Ahad | Directed by Rod Dixon
A new play from the writer of Partition and the award-winning The Chef Show – Glory takes you inside the wrestling ring in this gutsy story about what people will do to achieve glory.
Meet Dan, Ben and Sami. Three wrestlers compelled over the ropes and into the ring to fight for glory. Three men wrestling with demons, life, each other.
Jim ‘Glorious’ Glory used to be a somebody. In the heyday of British wrestling, he was a colossus. Now his empire has crumbled.
Through Dan, Ben and Sami, Jim catches a glimpse of resurrection; a chance to re-establish his great name and his decaying gym. But do they want to wrestle and restore Jim’s glory?
Or do they have a different fight in mind? Only one hero can emerge.
Glory is one of the BBC’s top theatre picks of 2019. Click HERE to read the article.
