It is 1922 and Marie Lloyd is in concert. She is joined by cross-dressing, male-impersonator, Vesta Tilley. Hear about their amazing lives, the Music Hall Strike and even murderer Dr Crippen. Marie and Vesta will sing many of their most famous songs, so do join in! Starring Judi Daykin and Karen Hill.
As the play moves between Marie's dressing room and the music hall stage, the audience learn not just about Marie’s amazing, if chequered, life, but also about Vesta, the Music Hall Strike of 1907, Marconi and even Dr Crippen. In this swift moving show, as well playing themselves, Vesta also becomes the men in Marie's life and Marie becomes the other women.
In true Music Hall fashion, Marie and Vesta will sing many of their most famous songs (such as Don't Dilly Dally, A Bit Of A Ruin That Cromwell Knocked About and Piccadilly Johnny) and joining in will be not only appreciated, but expected!
Live accompaniment - Jason Lambert.
