Glorious A comedy by Peter Quilter Directed by Doug Bennett Season 1 2012: 7 March to 24 March An hilarious and heart-warming comedy about the worst singer in the world. In 1940's New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see was Florence Foster Jenkins. Florence, a delusional but joyously happy woman who paid little attention to her critics, had a passion for singing, but a voice which left audiences crying with laughter. Based on a true story, the play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall.
