GLOCKENSPIEL, a new play written by Steven Dykes

Proudly Sponsored by Stagedoor: London theatre app

When: 04 January - 14 January 2017

Where: Tristan Bates Theatre

About: Three funerals. One town. The longest war in its history.


Far from the war waging overseas, a small American town is rocked by the deaths of three soldiers. As we meet the relatives we discover none of the dead were killed on active duty; the conspiracy behind each inglorious death preventing families from coming to terms with their loss.


‘Glockenspiel’ explores the lives of those left behind on the home front, celebrating the humour and spirit of ordinary people trapped in an extraordinary situation. Duty, Loyalty, Patriotism:                


What is the true cost of the War on Terror?


“They drape a flag over a box, we get to stand in the rain, and the world’s a safer place because of it.” - Glockenspiel, by Steven Dykes.


‘A triumph!’
– The Stage (on Homestead, by Steven Dykes)


“A chilling vision delivered in short sharp shocks.”
– The Stage (on The Spoils, by Steven Dykes)


“Compelling and eerily relevant, it is by turns erotic, tense and breezily combative.”
- Time Out (on The Happiness Compartment by Steven Dykes)


“A juicy steak of a play.”
- The Times (on Kolonists by Steven Dykes)
