Brighton - What’s on Stage this Week?

22 April 2019 | Maisy Farren

Spotlight On: Glengarry Glen Ross at Theatre Royal
What do I need to know? 
Recounting a story of cut-throat Chicago salesmen, four desperate employees seek to sell the most real estate by all means necessary. Lies, Greed. Corruption. It’s all business as usual for Glengarry Glen Ross. 
Any star spotting? The show stars plenty of TV famous faces, including Mark Benton (Northern Lights, Waterloo Road) and Nigel Harman (EastEnders, Mount Pleasant). 
What’s the big deal? David Mamet’s original play Glengarry Glen Ross has been a West End and Broadway hit, winning a Tony award, New York Drama Critics’ Circle award and Pulitzer Prize. The show was also made into a film in 1992, and since its creation in 1982 has been revived multiple times. Based on Mamet’s experiences in the US real estate industry it follows the attempts of four realtors who must try and sell undesirable property to unwitting buyers. With superb television talent on stage in Brighton, this triumphant play will be brought to life once again. 
When can I see it? 22 April – 27 April

Julian Clary: Born to Mince at The Dome
What do I need to know? An outrageously camp show in which ‘renowned homosexual’ Julian Clary bares his soul in the form of a comedy show and overall performance. He promises to murder some of your favourite songs and offers an extract from his next memoir A Night at the Lubricant. His website teases that this could be Clary’s final mince, so be sure not to miss it.

Stella Donnelly at The Haunt 
What do I need to know? Australian singer songwriter Stella Donnelly writes frankly about damaging male cultures in her self-release ‘Boys Will Be Boys’, and is bringing her delicate, sing-songy tunes to audiences in the UK.
