Watching Glory Die

European Premier
by critically acclaimed and award-winning Canadian playwright

Judith Thompson


19 - 23 July 2016, Cockpit Theatre, London


The riveting journey of three women bound together in

impossible circumstances.


Glory is a 19-year-old prison inmate whose defiant nature leads to an ever-spiraling clash with Corrections Canada. What can her mother do? What is the responsibility of her guard?


Inspired by the real-life case of Ashley Smith, who was initially incarcerated at age 15 for throwing crabapples, Watching Glory Die takes a bold dramatic leap from the news headlines to forge the kind of visceral lyricism that is the hallmark of Judith Thompson at her most powerful.
