Liz Kingsman's One-Woman Show will play a limited six-week run in London's West End later this year, following runs at Edinburgh Festival and Soho Theatre. The production will start in December, with exact dates and theatre to be announced.
Written and performed by Kingsman, One-Woman Show is vaguely described in press notes as a "bold, irreverent, raw, moving, and triumphant celebration of adjectives." Adam Brace will direct with lighting design by Daniel Carter-Brennan. Wessex Grove, led by Emily Vaughan-Barratt and Benjamin Lowy, is producing. Further creative team will be announced.
"No one is more surprised than I am that the theatre community continue to take this prank at face value," says Kingsman. "In saying that, I am beyond excited to bring the show to London’s West End. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it earlier."
"We are delighted to be transferring Liz's extraordinary hit into the West End later this year," add Vaughan-Barratt and Lowy. "What she has created is the perfect show—it's hysterical, powerful, and incredibly clever. She is undoubtedly a major force and one we are proud to be collaborating with."
