Directors are either arseholes or pains in the arse and Wilson Speculum is both. He’s also the most talented, brilliant and successful Avant Garde Theatre Director to have ever graced the planet but now Speculum’s days are numbered.
As he gets to the end of the longest technical rehearsal ever, three years of his greatest epic, the 48 hour long Silence (a co-production with every major theatre and festival in the world), Speculum’s life is in grave danger.
To celebrate his return to the stage after 16 years, David Glass presents his solo Paradiso section of his Devine Comedy Trilogy. Developed during lockdown in conversation with directors Mike Alfreds, Tom Morris and Julian Crouch.
“A physical language of his own that is so fluent it can make words seem cumbersome. Genuis.” The Independent
There will be a Q&A with David Glass after the performance, moderated by Artistic Director Marie McCarthy.
Funded by Arts Council England and supported by London International Mime Festival.
This performance will take place with a live audience at Omnibus Theatre.
