Produced by Kick In The Head

Directed by Simon Downing

Kick In The Head (Old Herbaceous, Three Men in a Boat & Fagin?) are proud to present a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the loss of the great, unremittingly genteel, comedienne and monologist, Joyce Grenfell.

Choice Grenfell is a wonderful tribute featuring some of the best of Joyce’s hilarious 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 endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard.

We are delighted that the family of William Blezard have allowed us access to previously unpublished rehearsal recordings and personal letters from Joyce allowing a unique insight into the queen of comediennes. As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company”.

With Suzanne Walters as Joyce Grenfell and Andrew D Brewis as William Blezard. Additional material written by Simon Downing. Sketches by Joyce Grenfell are presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD, a Concord Theatricals Company.
