Gloria project presentation

2013 marked the centenary of the birth of one of Croatia’s greatest modern playwrights, Ranko Marinković. Honey-tongued Theatre Productions is aiming to stage the first English language production of his masterpiece Gloria.

This gripping, atmospheric play set immediately after the Second World War in a remote island church questions the nature of faith as a Roman Catholic priest enlists the help of a nun (a former trapeze artist), to create a miracle and thus rekindle the faith of the locals. This is why we chose to use a trapeze with a halo for the title design. The photographer is  John Drennan.
