The Glee Club comes to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Guildford 12 – 16 April
A raucous comedy featuring live music, Richard Cameron’s The Glee Club comes to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford (12 – 16 Apr).
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.
Celebrating a lost world that is still a significant part of our collective history, the topics The Glee Club deals with are as topical now as ever: loyalty, homophobia, loss of innocence, failure to communicate, class and masculinity.
The Glee Club is an extraordinary portrait of a group of friends on the verge of enormous change. Their loyalty and love for each other is tested as they struggle to support each other when their world begins to crumble.
‘Music is… I’m a mining engineer because I was expected to be. I do this because it means something.’
