    The Palace Theatre Redditch

    All and Sundry in The Room Upstairs presents

    THE GLASS MENAGERIETHE GLASS MENAGERIE

    by Tennessee Williams

    Tom has the soul of a poet but a job in a Warehouse, and longs for adventure and escape from his mothers suffocating embrace. Abandoned by her Husband, Amanda Wingfield finds comfort in the recollections of a more perfect life in the deep South, the endless pursuit to keep Tom working at the warehouse, and to find her shy daughter, Laura, a husband. Laura finds solace from the angry frustrations of her Mother and Brother in her collection of Glass Animals and romantic thoughts.

    However, when a Gentleman Caller finally arrives, Laura and Amanda become more hopeful than they ever have been- but will it end in Laura’s romantic illusions being shattered?

    The Glass Menagerie is often heralded as one of Tennessee Williams most powerful and moving plays, and as the epitome of loneliness and lost love.

    Tickets £10.00 & £9.00 (concs)

    Age: Suitable for all    

    Please note for booking tickets please call our box office team on 01527 65203 – Tickets are not available on line for this event.........for more details visit www.allandsundry.org

    For a video of Dave and Elly singing The Blacksmith visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym2r4-voTTs  

    • David Gibb and Elly Lucas are an exciting young duo who play a mixture of original and re‐worked traditional folk material. They hail from Derbyshire in the Midlands and have previously toured the UK extensively as part of David Gibb & The Pony Club.

      David plays the guitars, melodeon and sings; Elly plays fiddle, viola and also sings. From these minimal resources, the twosome produce distinctive vocal leads, haunting harmonies and a quite dense instrumental sound. Their singing is simple and unadorned ‐ check out Elly’s wistful vocal on ‘Blacksmith’ or David’s lead to ‘Jerusalem Cuckoo’. The pair were chosen as finalists in the prestigious BBC Young Folk Awards 2011 and, on the road, have supported such acts as Cara Dillon, Chris Wood,Coope, Boyes and Simpson, Jez Lowe, and Megson.

      In early 2011, they released their first EP, entitled ‘Three Children Sliding On The Ice’, garnering praise and national airplay from the likes of the Mike Harding Show (BBC Radio 2) : Mike Harding says ‘I was very impressed’. In the autumn of last year, they spent some time in the recording studio with producer Chris Harding, putting the final touches to their début album ‘Old Chairs To Mend’, which was released on Hairpin Records in March 2012.
