This month - Piaf sings again
Almost time for the curtain to rise on 'the little sparrow'
Our June production - Piaf, by Pam Gems - opens at the Brewhouse on Tuesday June 25 and runs until Saturday June 29, 2013.
Many of you will be familiar with the unique voice of of Edith Piaf, and you might even know that she had a charismatic stage presence and rose from the back streets of Paris to become an international star.
But not everyone knows that her private life was wild, unconventional and controversial.
This gritty drama, with music, shows her offstage as a coarse, unreliable and promiscuous woman who at times in her life was addicted to drink and drugs. This is a play with adult content and some strong language.
It captures both the glamour and the squalor of this extraordinary woman's life.
We are delighted to be presenting this play in the year that marks the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest singers of the 20th century.
Below are some images captured at rehearsals by Geoff Thompson The cast includes Katie Haywood as Piaf, Vicky Fryer as her friend Toine, Sarah Spencer as Marlene Dietrich, Pete Banton as Piaf's manager Henri, Rob Tunley as Piaf's agent Pierre, Mike Mear as Papa Leplee and John Bowness as Marcel.
The show will be performed at 7.30pm each night of its run and there is also a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm on June 29.
Tickets are Â£8 and can be obtained from the Brewhouse box office in person, by telephoning 01283-508100 or online from http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/littletheatreco
