“tremendously funny and totally on the ball” The Telegraph

“marvellous production “

“beautifully adapted for the stage “

“treat yourself to an evening of magical mirth and music, a wonderful celebration of humanity!”

“Andrew Brewis's practical musical prowess, as William Blezard, sitting at the keyboard is masterly. Suzanna Walters gives us the perfect Joyce, of fondest memory, with uncannily accurate facial expressions, movement and posture. Like Joyce herself, the voice is not loud, but the diction is perfect.”

Kick In The Head are following up their hugely successful productions of Old Herbaceous, Fagin? and Three Men in a Boat with a wonderful production dedicated to one of the country’s best loved comediennes, Joyce Grenfell.

Kick In The Head have now secured national rights to perform Choice Grenfell until 31 May 2020, a full length show celebrating the life of Joyce Grenfell during the 40th anniversary year of her death. The family of William Blezard (Joyce’s musical director and pianist) have also given permission for us to use material from previously unheard rehearsal tape recordings and personal letters sent from Joyce to William. The show will therefore provide a completely unique view into the life of Joyce Grenfell through the eyes of her well respected friend, William Blezard.

 

A TRIBUTE TO JOYCE GRENFELL 

In these somewhat uncertain times comes a wonderful evening of warmth, wit and gentle humour. 

A full-length show featuring some of the best of Joyce’s hilarious songs and monologues from Stately As A Galleon and School Nativity Play to A Terrible Worrier and First Flight. 

Joyce is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard.

As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company” in the company of one of Britain’s best-loved comediennes
