The Essence of Audrey - A one woman play by Helen Anker


Tickets - £16.50

Have you ever wondered what is behind the seemingly idyllic life of Audrey Hepburn? She was, and continues to be, an inspiration. A beautiful, modest actress, and Ambassador of UNICEF. Audrey proved to be one of those rare people who truly deserved ‘fashion icon’ status, but what made her into the star we think we know?
In The Essence of Audrey she shares her successes and failures, her triumphs and disappointments, confronting her anxieties and fears and finding the truth she’s never been able to voice before. Glimpse behind the icon in this new biopic play written and performed by Helen Anker. Helen has appeared in many shows in the West End and on Broadway, and in numerous regional productions including Crazy for You, Cats, Oklahoma, Beautiful and Damned, The 39 Steps, My Fair Lady, Mamma Mia! and The Prom. 

“Fascinating, interesting, wonderful. Don’t miss it!” Dame Maureen Lipman
“Helen Anker is sensational” Christopher Biggins
