Liz Kingman’s critically acclaimed, smash-hit one-woman show transfers to the West End
Described as “the greatest breakthrough show of the past 12 months” (The Times), One-Woman Show transfers to the West End for a strictly limited run later this year. A bold, irreverent, raw, moving and triumphant celebration of adjectives, this blurb will nail down nothing.
Trigger warning: contains blinding ambition.
