Dawn French’s 30 Million Minutes live show will be heading off on a limited UK tour before heading to London’s Vaudeville Theatre in November it has been announced.
Following the popularity of the show when it went on tour in 2014, Dawn French will return on stage for five performances at select venues across the country in early November before bringing it to London for a limited season.
The new tour dates are: 3rd November – Liverpool Empire, 5th November – Fairfield Halls in Croydon,6th November – Worthing Pavilion Theatre ,8th November – The Swan Theatre, High Wycombe.
30 Million Minutes has been written by the award-winning actress and is based on her life and career. It consists of various delightful stories and the occasional bump in the road as Dawn takes audiences through what she has learnt from life so far.
With her trademark eye for comedy detail and ear for absurdities, Dawn French shares how she has been spending her life trying to be a fully functioning female human.
It is highly recommended that if you plan on going to see the show do it now as Dawn fully believes that she will soon be far too doolally to perform it.
Talking about bringing the shows back to venues across the UK Dawn says: “I shall be buying new pants in honour of this exciting opportunity to bring my show back to theatres across the country, so every audience member can relax in the knowledge that I will be fully contained and utterly fragrant at all times. Look, it’s not a play, it’s not stand up, it’s not a monologue, it’s not a slide show, but it’s something a bit like all of those with some alarming extreme striptease thrown in. Please don’t bother with it if you don’t usually enjoy yourself, it’s only for marvellous lovely people.”
The show is directed by Michael Grandage and produced by Phil McIntyre Entertainments. Tickets are on sale now.
30 Million Minutes arrives at the Vaudeville Theatre from the 11th November until 5th December.
