As always, The Lamb's Players delivered an outstanding show. A powerful story well acted, with intriguing music effects. I did not care for the too-loud gunshots in the small theatre.
We had excellent seats; thank you!

This was definitely NOT my cup of tea. The book needs a LOT of work. It can't make up its mind as to whether it should go for a light comic touch or preach from the pulpit. It's not successful at either. Mrs. Smythe has fallen back on old habits....continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Critic’s Choice: Lamb’s Players Theatre and director Robert Smyth roll out a production that feels rooted in the soil and soul of the civil-rights-era South. A mix of homespun humor and spiritual heft goes to the heart of Dennis Hassell’s gospel-laced drama.” —San Diego Union-Tribune_ _

Description

_The Glory Man _

Written by Dennis Hassell

Directed by Robert Smyth

Music compiled, arranged and directed by Deborah Gilmour Smyth

This sweeping American story features a multi-talented cast of 17, bringing to life more than 40 characters in a charged Southern landscape. Clarence Jordan, author of The Cotton Patch Gospel_, started Koinonia Farm, an unconventional racially-integrated community in the 1940s whose legacy includes the start of Habitat for Humanity. Associate Artist Dennis Hassell (_A Divine Comedy) gives us an epic new play filled with passion, humor, and stirring music.
