A riotously funny show revealing just what happens when a glamorous French actress and her hapless assistant stage their version of Hollywood blockbuster Gladiator.
Gloria Delaneuf is well-versed in mime, mask, and the mysteries of stage-craft. Her UK tour manager Josephine Cunningham is not. Together they have created Gloriator – an awe-inspiring production of bravery, honour, and costumes made out of cardboard. Russell Crowe may not be available, but they are determined it will be a show you’ll never forget.
Wonderfully inventive, physical, and very very silly, Gloriator was created by French/English female comedy duo Spitz & Co. with the help of Spymonkey’s Aitor Basauri and Publick Transport’s Angus Barr. It won the Critics’ Choice Award at Exeter Ignite in 2014 and was developed with support from the Arts Council England and Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment.
