Dawn French Is A Huge Tw*t

by Dawn French

UK Tour

Directed by Michael Grandage

Cast: Dawn French

Dawn French, the Queen of British comedy, returns to the stage this autumn with a brand new solo show, Dawn French Is A Huge Twat. Dawn will tour the UK from 10 September-16 October. Tickets for all shows are on sale now.

The award-winning actor, best-selling novelist and all-round very funny lady is here to tell us more:

“This show is so named because unfortunately, it’s horribly accurate. There have been far too many times I have made stupid mistakes or misunderstood something vital or jumped the gun in a spectacular display of twattery. I thought I might tell some of these buttock clenching embarrassing stories to give the audience a peek behind the scenes of my work life…

Roll up! Book early to see the telly vicar lady be a total twat on stage, live in front of your very eyes. And ears.”
