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.

Age guidance: 16+

Duration: 135 minutes with interval

Warning: Infrequent Strong Language, Full Frontal nudity & Violence. Reference to homophobic violence.

★★★★ “This gorgeous play zeroes in with extraordinary skill” —The Times

“A glorious play” —Daily Telegraph
