The Glad Cafe
. . . the never say can't canteen


The flyer for The Glad Cafe (2 page pdf) is here.

A new play, by deirdre burton and tom davis, from somesuch theatre - funny, inventive, intriguing, inspiring. and heart-warming. Join us for a rich and nourishing experience, with plenty of food for thought.

Gaston, the waiter, is waiting for you at the Glad Cafe. And so is the opportunity of a lifetime. Come inside and see what's on offer. You might get a delicious surprise. Today's unusual customers get more than they were expecting - much more.

"Why is it called the Glad Cafe? Well, Gladness is what we do. We do other emotions as well, of course, be boring otherwise. but Gladness is our pièce de résistance . . . we do the complete kaboodle, that's what we do, but most of all we do Glad.

And how do we do that? You will find out."
