Jesus. Gloriator is ace! Sooooooo funny!
Glorilla – PULSE FESTIVAL (New Wolsey Studio, Ipswich) – The public reviews – Glen Pearce – June 2015
#Gloriator Gladiator done with cardboard props and just two actors. Hilarious. No, really – I laughed until I cried. Go and see it!
Just saw the brilliantly bonkers ‘Gloriator‘ in Clevedon with @TheatreOrchard – a great night. Can’t wait to see the next theatre shop show!
“Once again Morel and Donkin demonstrate their spectacular comedy chops and dramaturgical sophistication in an hour of non-stop hilarity.” Exeunt Magazine – Belinda Dillon – February 14th 2015
“Gloriator a great show by an hysterical female double act, who are clowns in the best possible meaning of the world. Catch them now before they’re filling out the Albert Hall” Woman’s Weekly – Mel Giedroyc – November 2014

“Morel and Donkin give tremendously skilled performances that combine precise physical control and dexterity with subtle characterisation, revealing all the delicate shifts in balance that perpetuate Gloria and Josephine’s love-hate relationship. A comedy duo of immense talent. ” Exeunt Magazine – Belinda Dillon – June 17th 2014 (wildfire edition three_June 2014)
“Wildly inventive and hilarious” Bridport News
“Belly-achingly funny” Gloucester Citizen
“When was the last time you laughed non-stop for a full hour? I don’t mean giggle, or have an occasional titter but a full-on, uncontrollable belly laugh? That is what I enjoyed while watching Gloriator…. I hooted. I snorted. I exploded with such mirth that the tears streamed down my face.” Rachael Lythgoe, Stroud News & Journal (Click here to read the full review)

Just back from @Stroudtheatre Festival & @susiedonkin ‘s wonderful Gloriator: had audience in tears of laughter.
“We saw you at Shambala – seriously one of the best, original and funniest things I’ve seen. My sides still hurt. Thank you so much! It was a total highlight.” Joesomuch (Facebook)
“Serendipitously stumbled across ‘ GLORIATOR’ at Glastonbury Festival 2014 and loved the show. Very original and funny. Bravo!” Richard Matz (Facebook)
“I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed your show Gloriator at The Olympus Theatre. It was so refreshing to see such daring and playful theatre. It’s a long time since I’ve seen anything as strong as your wonderful show.” Mark (JOLT Festival July 2014)
Most hilarious show I’ve seen in a while. GLORIATOR @BikeShedTheatre.
Gloriator may be the funniest thing I’ve ever seen @ExeterIgnite
“I honestly have never seen a piece of theatre that has made me laugh
more than Gloriator did. It was so well acted and directed… I just
dont have the superlatives to describe how good it was!” Rosie Woodham
Another @BristolFerment day done. My favourite bit was Gloriator; Tommy Cooper meets The Gladiator. T’was ace
