Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
Join Diane, former owner of Eighties’ Essex nightclub The Flick, and her band The Buffet, for a glitzy, fun-filled musical spectacular, amongst comic tales of her troubled and infamous past.
Diane ran the most popular, celeb-filled nightclub in Essex in the Eighties. She was hailed the Duchess of Canvey. But when the truth behind the garish curtains was uncovered, she was sent to prison and the club closed down. Since her release, she’s relocated to Hackney, tracked down her adoring partner Ron, found new members for her backing band and has been performing to packed crowds across East London for the past two years: singing the night away and sharing her memoirs of how she flew too close to the mirror ball.
‘There’ll be comedy, there’ll be hair, there’ll be music… but most of all there’ll be a whole load of fun.’
