Drama

The Glory of Living tells the story of Lisa, a 15-year-old girl, and her marriage to Clint, an ex-con twice her age. Systematically abused by her husband, Lisa is coerced into helping him commit crimes of varying magnitude, including murder. "…intelligent and provoking…Gilman has created a couple whose degeneracy is the vehicle for a searing analysis of moral codes, sexual abuse, fear, love, poverty and the value of a life" (The Sunday Times). "…plays don't come much tougher, or more compassionate… It's a viscerally powerful piece that, not unlike Bond's Saved, makes you look closely at a violent subculture from which you would normally shrink" (The Guardian). "…psychological shrewdness and on-target language…" (New York Magazine). Three int. sets. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
