Glory Theatre.. Brand New Play SEX/CRIME starring JONNY WOO!

No Comments Uncategorised

We’re delighted to announce that a brand new play is coming to The Glory, especially written for the venue. This is our first Glory theatre production in over a year, written by Alexis Gregory who made waves with his astonishing play SLAP – which followed the antics of a vulnerable, deranged, hooker Dominique, and also the play SAFE about the real stories of homeless and at-risk LGBT youth.

This new play SEX/CRIME is an exciting, challenging new play that explores sex, violence, language, fear and queerness. Starring our very own JONNY WOO alongside ALEXIS GREGORY. Two sell-out preview shows wowed audiences last year. The show has grown and developed into something bigger since then and will be touching down at The Glory in April, opening night April 9th.

See more info and the full fourteen April dates here:

Space is limited to 50 seats per night and tickets have already started budging so consult your April diary, pick your night (or nights!) and strap in for one hell of a wild ride!

It’s a dark thriller but it’s also a comedy – with a darkly funny script, moving in places, hair-raising in others and wild through-and-through! You’ve never seen Jonny Woo like this before and we can’t wait for press night on April 12th to see what London’s theatre crowd make of this truly exciting brand new play!
