Blue Fire Theatre Co present:
Marie Lloyd Stole My Life by J.J.Leppink
Saturday 18th February at 7.30 pm
Tickets: Adults £15, Children/Students £12
A tale of tempestuous relationships, a scandalous divorce, infamous jewel heist and a rescue at sea- all set against the background of Victorian Music Hall, and all absolutely true!
Nelly Power was a male impersonator and headliner at all the major theatres, but life was not a bed of roses and she was finally usurped by the next teenage sensation, her end was both sad and premature. That “teenage sensation” was Marie Lloyd! “Marie Lloyd Stole my life” is the story of the unglamorous side of showbusiness in Victorian London, told through the subversive lens of Music Hall. It’s a bit Ripper Street and a bit EastEnders, with songs.
