A hilarious show revealing just what happens when a glamorous French actress, Gloria Delaneuf, and her hapless assistant, Josephine Cunningham, stage their own version of Hollywood blockbuster Gladiator, “giving a voice to the female characters” of the film.
Wonderfully inventive, physical, and very silly, Gloriator was created by French/English female comedy duo Spitz & Co. It won the Critics Choice Award at Exeter Ignite, and was developed with support from Arts Council England and Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment.
