About The Glee Club
By Richard Cameron
★★★★ “A tender exploration of male friendship and sense of community” —The Stage
Of all my years of growing up, I grew up in 1962…
Music was on the move, the swing, the shake, the sex of it was comin’ through the airwaves.
Five hard-working, hard-drinking miners and a church organist are rehearsing frantically for the local gala. This is the Glee Club, and though they’ve played their share of working men’s clubs, they’re not exactly the vanguard of a musical revolution.
But this is the summer of ’62. Britain and music are about to change forever. And so are the lives of these six men.
A raucous comedy featuring live music, The Glee Club was first seen at the Bush Theatre in 2002 and soon transferred to the West End.
