Gloriator is 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 stagecraft. 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 silly, Gloriator won the Critics’ Choice Award at Exeter Ignite in 2014. Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity.
