Summer Visitors

The Essence of Audrey

BY HELEN ANKER.

DIRECTED BY MICHAEL VIVIAN.

Overview

“She had an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give it”

Audrey Hepburn was one of the world’s most beloved icons, a beautiful film star and humanitarian. In this play, the audience has been invited to a private viewing of her film memorabilia before it’s auctioned to raise funds for UNICEF. As she finds herself alone, she entertains her guests by talking about her life, sharing her successes and failures, confronting her anxieties and fears, and finding the truth she’s never been able to voice before.

All she really wanted was to be loved and to find love. Have you ever wondered what is behind the idyllic and seemingly perfect life of Audrey Hepburn? Experience as close as you could get to… ‘An audience with Audrey!’ in Helen Anker’s new play.
