BY JOYCE GRENFELL.

DIRECTED BY PAUL KNIGHT.

8 August -

Overview

George. Don’t do that!

Joyce Grenfell was one of the greatest female entertainers of the twentieth century, loved the world over for her hilarious and beautifully observed monologues and songs, as well as numerous film, television and radio appearances. Ode To Joyce weaves the well-known songs and monologues between delicate and poignant pieces, as well as some rare and exclusive material. Truly a labour of love, this show brings back to life an extraordinary entertainer.

First conceived in honour of her centenary year and playing to sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this revue has been delighting audiences ever since. Cheryl Knight returns to perform this gem of nostalgia. Co-produced with Apollo Theatre Company.
