Following the huge success of her sold out solo UK tour in 2014, Dawn French, the queen of British comedy, now brings her hugely popular show 30 Million Minutes to London’s West End for a strictly limited season at the Vaudeville Theatre from 11th November. The award-winning actor, best-selling novelist and all round very funny lady has written the show herself, basing it on her life and career. Tickets on sale now.
The critically acclaimed 30 Million Minutes consists of various delights and riches, with the odd irksome tribulation thrown in, as Dawn takes audiences through the various lessons life has taught her, and the things she knows for sure.
With a sharp eye for comic detail and a wicked ear for the absurdities of life, Dawn French of Cornwall shares how she has misguidedly spent her whole life vigorously attempting to be a fully functioning female human.
Her extraordinary lack of willpower, combined with an enviable knack for nosey parking and showing off, has driven her to grapple with the big stuff of life in public. 30 million minutes of life in fact. That’s how long she’s been alive, give or take a few minutes here and there.
Dawn says; “I shall be buying new pants in honour of this exciting opportunity to bring my show into London’s glittery West End, so every audience member can relax in the knowledge that I will be fully contained and utterly fragrant at all times. Look, it’s not a play, it’s not stand up, it’s not a monologue, it’s not a slide show, but it’s something a bit like all of those with some alarming extreme striptease thrown in. Please don’t bother with it if you don’t usually enjoy yourself, it’s only for marvellous lovely people. All grumpy f******s should stay at home. Those of us who DO turn up, myself included, will share an evening we won’t forget in a hurry. I promise that.”
30 Million Minutes at the Vaudeville Theatre, London is produced by Phil McIntyre Entertainments. The show is directed by Michael Grandage.
