Lola is sixteen years old, sharp-witted and has her whole life ahead of her – until she's diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour. Now her brilliant mind is rapidly turning into useless mush.

So she's promised herself two things before she dies:
1. She's going to get All The Sex and
2. She'll definitively discover the Meaning of Life.

Stuart Slade's play Glee & Me is an unexpectedly optimistic portrayal of love and the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit. It won the Judges Award in the 2019 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, and was first performed at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in September 2021.

'A vinaigrette of despair poured over a salad of joy.'

Press Quotes

'A joyous play that asks how life is best lived when death's inevitability is impossible to ignore'

The Times

'Ferocious black humour'

Whatsonstage

'A play about life and how we live it, not about death in all its inevitability... a witty and warm-hearted celebration'

Guardian

'Frank, fresh, and blessedly unmawkish... remarkably believable – and extremely funny'

Independent

'Fiercely funny... heart-wrenching but ultimately comforting'
