WCT Presents: Glory

By TRACEY POWER
Produced in association with Alberta Theatre Projects, Calgary

In 1933, four friends set out to prove to Canada that hockey isn’t just a sport for men. But with the Great Depression weighing heavily on the nation and political tensions rising in Europe, can they overcome the odds, and people’s expectations, to forge their own path to glory? Told through music and dance inspired by the jazz age, GLORY is an thrilling hockey story that proves a woman’s place is on home ice.
