The Glee Club Tour

The Glee Club Tour 2020  – Richard Cameron’s much-celebrated play will undertake a major tour in Spring 2020 followed by a London run.

Glee Club Tour 2020

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?

Richard Cameron’s raucous comedy about friendship and divided loyalty in a rough and rugged world, features the romantic songs of the 1950’s performed live on stage.

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.  The announcement of the first batch of dates reveals that the tour of Kate Wasserberg’s new production will begin at the same theatre on February 28 and will culminate in a run at Kiln Theatre in London from June 4 to 27.  More dates are to be announced.

Kate Wasserberg, Artistic Director of Out Of Jointsays –  “Richard Cameron is one of our greatest living writers, and I am so excited to be working with our partners Cast and Kiln Theatre to produce The Glee Club. With incredible songs and boisterous humour, it is the bittersweet story of one boy’s coming of age and the men he knew, held together by their love of music and each other. Out of Joint is above all things a touring company and we can’t wait to bring this play, about what unites us even when events threaten to tear us apart, to audiences all around the U.K.

The Glee Club tour will be presented by Out of Joint, Cast and Kiln Theatre.
