“If she isn’t the best story-teller in the world, she’s certainly up there with the best.” Time Out

In this hilarious, heart-warming and thought-provoking new show, internationally renowned actress Miriam Margolyes reveals for the first time on stage the full range of her immense talent.

Joined by acclaimed pianist John Martin, Miriam reflects on the family influences which have shaped her hugely successful career and her love of literary giants including William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde,

Throughout this captivating performance, Miriam inhabits over 20 characters with a dazzling variety of the accents for which she is renowned.

From Lady Bracknell and Miss Prism, to Romeo and Juliet’s Nurse and Juliet herself, Miriam also encores her Australian and international triumph of Gertrude Stein and A Companion. The best of Charles Dickens features in a showcase of wit, power and pathos.

The importance of music in Miriam’s life is recognised in a broad range of repertoire – from Music Hall and Variety to Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Satie and Liszt.

Well known for her sense of straight talking and outrageous wit, Miriam will delight in frank, honest and candid observations.
