Choice Grenfell

Dates & Times:



Directed by Simon Downing


In these somewhat uncertain times comes a wonderful evening of warmth, wit and gentle humour. The show features some of the best of Joyce’s delightful songs and monologues from ‘Stately as a Galleon’ and ‘School Nativity Play’ to “A Terrible Worrier” and "First Flight “. Joyce is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most delightful characters , ably accompanied by her trusted pianist. As Joyce would have said “ We request the pleasure of your company” in the  company of one of Britain’s best loved comediennes.


We are delighted that the family of William Blezard have allowed us access to previously unpublished rehearsal recordings and personal letters from Joyce allowing a unique insight into the queen of comediennes.
