Win two tickets to see The Glasshouse at 53two and a bottle of prosecco.
Confined in a cramped, makeshift prison on the back line of the Somme, two men stand charged with cowardice and desertion. Trapped inside the damp, cold and oppressive walls of this ‘Glasshouse’, a beautiful friendship crystallises between them. But how long can friendship last? And how much can a man withstand before he breaks?
In the 100th anniversary year of the end of World War I, acclaimed emerging company Grindstone team up with MAP Productions to remount Max Saunders-Singer’s emotional, award-winning drama, The Glasshouse for a Northern premiere. Based on extensive research into true stories of soldiers on the front lines, this powerful work explores a rarely seen side of trench warfare.
Following the intertwined stories of the misfits, idealists and tragic victims who pass through this hastily constructed trench prison cell, The Glasshouse is a moving, blood-pumping and powerful play. Through these stories, it also shines a stark new light on the effects of shell shock and failures in the treatment of so called ‘cowards’ and ‘conchies’ who were unable or refused to fight.
This piece will be supported by and mark the launch of the brand new and brilliant Switch MCR who will perform their devised ‘curtain raiser’ as a response to the script, from November 2-4, 2018. The piece will also headline a rapid-response night on November 5.
To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to this event, plus a bottle of prosecco, all you have to do is sign up to the Northern Soul newsletter (details of how to do this are on the right-hand side of the page) and send an email to email@example.com with the title ‘The Glasshouse’.
