Glee & Me

Stuart Slade’s Bruntwood-winning dark comedy Glee & Me has its world première at the Royal Exchange in Manchester this autumn.

BAFTA-nominated actor Liv Hill will be performing the one-woman show directed by Nimmo Ismail. It focuses on 16-year-old Lola, a sharp-witted teenager who has her whole life ahead of her—until diagnosed with a brain tumour. The production opens September 11 and will run in rep with The Mountaintop until October 30.

Liv Hill is well known for her role in Jellyfish for which she was nominated for a British Independent Film Award as most promising newcomer. She also played the young Glenda Jackson in Elizabeth Is Missing.
