Mame.
Tuesday 21 – Saturday 25 January at 7.30pm
Thursday and Saturday matinees at 2.15pm

Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death! That’s the motto of Mame Dennis, one of musical theatre’s all-time greatest heroines, in this brassy, hilarious and touching adaptation of Patrick Dennis’s bestseller, Auntie Mame, starring critically acclaimed and two-time Olivier Award-winner Tracie Bennett as Mame (End of the Rainbow, Hairspray, Blood Brothers, Coronation, Scott & Bailey) and film, TV and theatre favourite Harriet Thorpe as Vera (Absolutely Fabulous, The Brittas Empire, new BBC comedy Mister Winner, Wicked, Mamma Mia! - National Theatre & West End).

Set in New York City and spanning the Great Depression and World War II, Mame Dennis and her intellectual and arty clique are disrupted when her deceased brother’s 10-year-old son Patrick is entrusted into her care. Rather than bow to convention, Mame tries her hand at a number of jobs with comically, disastrous results.
