Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Richard Cameron‘s raucous comedy about friendship and divided loyalty in a rough and rugged world receives a major revival at the Kiln Theatre in 2020.

In a poignant and hilariously heartwarming play with romantic songs of the 1950’s performed live on stage,  join a group of miners as they reminisce on shared experiences and the close bonds between them.

The Glee Club runs from 4 June 2020 until 27 June 2020 at the Kiln Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

‘When I go back those days in my head, it’s too that pit and the fun I had with a bunch of old men singing songs.’

It is 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.

This is The Glee Club, a group of unlikely singers, who 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?

Corrie and Emmerdale actor Bill Ward to headline ‘The Glee Club’
Coronation Street and Emmerdale actor Bill Ward will star in the UK tour and London run of The Glee Club. Richard Cameron's raucous comedy about friendship and divided loyalty receives a major revival next year under the direction of Kate Wasserberg, Artistic Directer of Out Of Joint theatre company. Fresh from playing Hugo / Loco Chanelle in the West End hit Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Ward will take on the role of Bant.  Ward's stage credits include Viva Forever, Million Dollar Quartet and Spamalot in The West End, Shakespeare In Love at the Bath Theatre Royal and on tour, Look Back in Anger at Northern Stage and The Lady From The Sea at The Royal Exchange. Set in 1962, the show follows five hard-working, hard-drinking Doncaster miners, together with their church organist accompanist, as they frantically prepare to wow the audience of a local gala concert with their sweet tones. Little do they know, but both Britain and music are about to change, and so too are their lives. The production will feature the romantic songs of the 1950's performed live on stage. First staged at the Bush Theatre in 2002, followed by a West End transfer, The Glee Club was last revived seven years ago to open Cast, in Doncaster, Richard Cameron's home town. The revival is a joint production between Out of Joint, Cast and the Kiln Theatre in North London. The tour opens at Cast, Doncaster running from 28 February - 7 March, and will then play dates in Mold (10-14 March), Lichfield (24-28 March), Malvern (7-11 April), Cambridge (14-18 April), Bury St Edmunds (21-25 April), Newcastle (28 Apr-2May), Guildford (5-9 May), Oldham (12-16 May), Leeds (19-23 May), York (27-30 May) and culminates at the Kiln Theatre in London.
