Description

As part of The B Right On LGBT+ Community Festival

Edith Piaf is alive and well, and back in Brighton

The winner of the Archangel Critic’s Choice Award at Brighton Fringe 2018, makes a welcome return to the Brighton stage at the Phil Starr Pavilion on Sunday 31 March, as part of the city’s B Right On LGBT+ Community Festival.

‘Edith Piaf Live at Nimegue’ is a one man show of two very different halves. It weaves the story of the life of the celebrated French singer with that of a fifty something super-fan from Stoke on Trent whose first singing engagement was as an Edith Piaf tribute act in Paris in 1984. The first act is an affectionate re-telling of Piaf’s life. After the interval, her last ever filmed concert in Holland, just ten months before her untimely death aged just 47, is reimagined.

This play with music is the work of Brighton & Hove residents Andrew Farr and collaborator Peter Allinson. Farr says of the piece, ‘Edith Piaf’s childhood was traumatic and throughout her life she sang songs of tragedy. But she loved to laugh, and this one-man show tries not to lose sight of the laughter and Piaf’s tremendous sense of fun. We’re thrilled to be bringing Piaf to a wider audience again. We were overwhelmed by the reaction to, and support for, the play at last year’s Fringe. We hope that this appearance at the B Right On LGBT Community Festival can keep the indomitable spirit of Edith Piaf alive for a little longer.’
