Choice Grenfell

Production Company: Kick in the Head
Venue: The Corn Hall

Directed by Simon Downing

Featuring the best of Joyce Grenfell’s hilarious songs and monologues from ‘Stately as a Galleon’ and ‘School Nativity Play’, to ‘A Terrible Worrier’ and ‘First Flight’, this is a wonderful celebration of the work and talent of the unremittingly genteel comedienne and monologist.

Using previously unpublished rehearsal recordings and some of Joyce’s personal letters, Joyce herself (played by Suzanne Walters) is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard performed by Andrew D Brewis.

As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company”.

‘…tremendously funny and totally on the ball’ The Telegraph

“Andrew Brewis's practical musical prowess, as William Blezard, sitting at the keyboard is masterly. Suzanna Walters gives us the perfect Joyce, of fondest memory, with uncannily accurate facial expressions, movement and posture. Like Joyce herself, the diction is perfect.” Opening Night review
