“When was the last time you laughed non-stop for a full hour? I don’t mean giggle, or have an occasional titter but a full-on, uncontrollable belly laugh? That is what I enjoyed while watching Gloriator…. I hooted. I snorted. I exploded with such mirth that the tears streamed down my face.” Rachael Lythgoe, Stroud News & Journal
In 2000 director Ridley Scott brought you Gladiator; an epic film of bravery, honour and sacrifice. Now, fourteen years later, the world-renowned French actress Gloria Delaneuf and her UK tour manager Josephine Cunningham, bring youGloriator; an awe-inspiring production of bravery, honour, and costumes made out of cardboard.
Russell Crowe may not be available and their budget is limited, but they are determined it will be a show you’ll never forget…
