In the summer of ’62, five hard-working, hard-drinking Doncaster miners, together with their church organist accompanist, are frantically preparing to wow the audience of a local gala concert with their sweet tones.
This is The Glee Club, a group of unlikely singers, who though being established in the working men’s clubs, aren’t exactly known for being at the vanguard of a musical revolution. But both Britain and music are about to change … and so too are the lives of these six men, will anything ever be the same again?
The Glee Club was first staged at the Bush Theatre in 2002 before transferring to the West End. It was revived seven years ago to open Cast, in Doncaster, the writer’s hometown. This exciting new production from Out of Joint (Rita, Sue and Bob Too), Cast & Kiln Theatre will start once again in Doncaster before going on a UK tour.
