Chairing post-show talks and panel discussions that give unmissable insights to audiences is my favourite thing to do. I have a wide variety of events coming up for plays and musicals across London and beyond.
Flowers for Mrs Harris
8 October 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm| £25 – £29.50
Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee Jenna Russell takes the title role in new musical Flowers For Mrs Harris, which finally gets its London premiere at Riverside Studios after critical acclaim at Sheffield Crucible and Chichester Festival Theatre.
For Ada Harris, day-to-day life is spent cleaning houses. But one day, when she is working for a wealthy client in Belgravia, she happens upon a Dior dress that takes her breath away.
In that magical moment, Ada has an epiphany and sets off on a journey that will change her life… From the cobbled streets of post-war London to the magical avenues of Paris and beyond, Ada transforms the lives of everyone she meets along the way, but can she let go of her past and finally let her own life blossom?
