Exciting news for Adelaide-based fans of comedic doyenne DAWN FRENCH,
with confirmation today that Ms French’s 30 Million Minutes
is heading to the city of churches. This very special live theatre event will perform at Her Majesty’s Theatre on Friday April 5
Local audiences have been quick to embrace 30 Million Minutes, snapping up tickets for the Australian tour commencing late January 2016 in Brisbane. It seems we literally can’t get enough of this award-winning actor, best-selling novelist and all round very funny lady – with the inclusion of Adelaide, the tour now encompasses 29 dates across seven locations, with many of the shows already sold out.
Tickets for this Adelaide performance will go on sale at midday this Friday, December 4.
My Live Nation members can be among the first to secure tickets during the exclusive pre-sale commencing 10am tomorrow, December 1.
30 Million Minutes
, a new show based on Dawn’s life and career, has already garnered widespread critical acclaim during an extensive tour of the UK. It 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.
The evidence is there for all to see. She is already three quarters certifiably daft. The other quarter is utterly bewildered. And the remaining quarter simply can’t do maths. 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.
Dawn says; “I’m sick with excitement about this solo tour. I am enjoying the fact that I can’t categorise exactly what it is, but it’s somewhere between a monologue, a play, and an autobiographical slide show with a few funnies thrown in. At last, I have had one of my three genie wishes granted, which is to work with Michael Grandage. The other two wishes are as yet unfulfilled. They are secret obviously, but suffice to say, one is about Barack Obama in Speedos. The other is about me in speedos, with cheesecake involved… Enough said.”
30 Million Minutes is produced by Phil McIntyre Entertainments. The show is directed by Michael Grandage. Set and Costume Design by Lez Brotherston. Lighting Design by Willie Williams.
