The Dukes and Red Ladder in association with Tamasha present
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 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.
A new play from the writer of Partition and the award-winning The Chef Show – GLORY takes us into the wrestling ring in this painfully funny, sweaty and gutsy story about what people will do to achieve glory.
Glory has been supported through Arts Council England’s Sustained Fund.
