A double bill of two badass feminist comedians in one night!
ALL ABOARD THE TERMINATION STATION – LILLY BURTON
An exclusive preview of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut from performer, writer, and creative activist Lilly Burton.
A comedy-cabaret about abortion…obvs!
This is Lilly’s story: a bracing, booming and brash autobiographical tale. A misadventure unravelling from the inside out. Here’s to the people who felt lonely, guilty, relieved, ashamed or nothing at all. The people who bled a lot or not that much. The people who think about it often and the people who don’t.
This is a cry to arms that will have you slamming down your pints in support of reproductive rights!
“Fearlessly funny and painfully poignant” – Shami Chakrabarti
“Extraordinary” – Bechdel Theatre
WORK IN PROGRESS – CARMEN ALI
A solo stand up show about sex work, stigma, and society by multi-disciplined performer Carmen Ali (Comedy Bloomers LGBTQ+ New Comedian of the Year Finalist 2019, as seen on the BBC, TimeOut & The Guardian).
Too often sex workers are written about and talked about without any input from actual sex workers, but Carmen Ali is here to tell you the truth – the good, the bad, and the hilarious.
From how the laws affect us to how she once did a domme sessionwhile listening to ABBA. Sex workers are heavily marginalised and stigmatised, and this needs to end. So come into her dungeon, I mean, basement, I mean intimate cabaret space, and learn (and laugh) about the oldest profession in the world.
Previous audience feedback:
“Personable, warm, friendly, and educational”
“I loved it!”
“I was interested throughout and laughed a lot!”
THIS SHOW IS DOWNSTAIRS
Please note The Glory is a queer venue run by queer people, for queer people and their allies. We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and discrimination of any kind. Be respectful or you will be asked to leave. Strictly no office, hen or stag parties allowed.
The Glory is a very old building with pre-existing accessibility issues and while we’ve strived to make the space user friendly, there is no ‘easy’ wheelchair accessibility to all areas of the venue.
MAIN BAR ACCESSIBILITY:
The main bar is accessible, though the toilets are up a flight of 3 stairs with a handrail. Wheelchairs cannot access the toilets however. There is a local restaurant a few doors down who have an accessible toilet that they are happy for our customers to use.
To access shows in the basement there is a narrow flight of 12 stairs with a handrail.
The main bar has plenty of seats and tables. Ticketed shows are seated unless otherwise stated.
