An inspirational new play based on an incredible true story of our national sport. In the 1930s, the Preston Rivulettes women’s hockey team won an astonishing 300 games and several Canadian championships, all while fighting through the Depression, prejudice, and personal upheaval.

Featuring electrifying swing-dance choreography, this gripping production captures all the thrills, excitement, and tension of a great hockey game. Go Rivulettes!

This is a Canadian sports story, a good one, not to mention a feminist parable that explores a virtually unknown chapter of this country's sports history. Produced in association with Alberta Theatre Projects, Calgary and presented by Western Canada Theatre.

Quote: "GLORY is a thrilling hockey story that proves a woman’s place is on home ice". Globe and Mail Theatre Review
