Josie’s tired. Tired of the Bolton winter. Tired of looking after daydreaming daughter Brenda-Marie. Tired of working as a dominatrix to make ends meet. Too tired to celebrate turning forty.
But her favourite client Lionel insists on a birthday party and, knowing Josie’s a huge Elvis fan, invites a very special guest. Just as hips start swinging, somebody no-one expected arrives and skeletons come tumbling out of the closet…
At its heart, this hilarious and heartfelt comedy explores finding a place to fit in. Sweet yet saucy, it’s the perfect ‘adults only’ alternative Christmas treat.
Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis runs from 11 December – 4 January 2020 at Park Theatre London.PARK THEATRE WEBSITE
