“You don’t have to do much to be an actor; just to be able speak and remember lines. Two very basic things”

Phoebe is an actor.

From her childhood impressions of Dolly Parton to grown up roles at the National Theatre, the Donmar Warehouse and New York Theatre Workshop, acting has defined who and what she is.

In November 2018 Phoebe was diagnosed with an incurable tumour in the area of her brain that controls speech, language and memory.

The Glad Game is Phoebe’s Story: of finding herself in the bleakest of times, of discovering gladness in the saddest of moments and about how who and what you love can pull you through.

The Glad Game is Co-Produced by Nottingham Playhouse and Pippa Frith, Sound Design by Iain Armstrong, supported by Arts Council England, Television Workshop, The Bush and Leicester Curve. Our charity partners are Brain Tumour Research.

Reduced Capacity Performances

All performances of The Glad Game will be Reduced Capacity.

We know that some audience members would feel more comfortable with extra space between themselves and other parties and we’re delighted to offer a number of reduced capacity performances this autumn. For reduced capacity performances, audience members will be seated at intervals to ensure that each party is distanced by at least 1 row or seat from each other. Tickets are available in fixed groups, where from 1 to a maximum of 6 seats are grouped together.

COVID Guarantee

We’re so pleased to be welcoming audiences back to the venue but would like to reassure you that, should your booking be affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, you will be offered a refund, account credit or a ticket exchange (where available), giving you peace of mind when you book.
