New UK tour of GORMENGHAST - the stage adaptaion by David Glass

Gormenghast Play - by David Glass
A new stage adaptation of Gormenghast by David Glass will begin its run on May 8th.

The production will be shown in theatres across the county, including: Poole, Brecon, Chester, Guildford, Portmouth, Aberystwyth and others.

Last seen in 1994 in this country, it has since toured all over the the far east with great success. This highly acclaimed interpretation of the book will be another chance for those who so enthused about Glass's wonderful 'Kabuki' staging last time, while adding to his reputation as a unique interpreter of Mervyn Peake's magnum opus, in his new and exciting production.

Further detials will be posted soon on the Official Gormenghast website.
