Glorious! is a stage comedy by acclaimed playwright Peter Quilter which has received a Laurence Olivier Award nomination as Best New Comedy in 2005 and has since been seen by two million plus people across six continents.
Starring Diana McLean who has a long career in theatre, film and television and is best known for her roles on Neighbours, All Saints and Water Rats, Glorious! Is set New York, in the 1940s and tells the hilarious and true story of the world’s worst opera singer - Florence Foster Jenkins - who was referred to as 'the first lady of the sliding scale'.
This deliciously happy and delusional woman paid scant attention to her critics and would screech and warble to her audiences who in the majority fell about with laughter. This heart-warming comedy moves from Florence's recitals for charity and lavish balls, through to her very odd recording sessions and her ultimate performance triumph at New York’s Carnegie Hall, incorporating her wonderfully colourful relationships along the way.
