ROLL OUT THE BERYL...

PRESENTED BY LAURIELORRY THEATRE AND MAKIN PROJECTS IN ASSOCIATION WITH LEICESTER COMEDY FESTIVAL AND CHELTENHAM COMEDY FESTIVAL A rich menu of theatre, pleasantry and humour are brought to the table that celebrates the late great British comedy actress Beryl Reid. Beryl’s vivacious character is brought to life - along with some of her best loved characters including Marlene from the Midlands, Monica the naughty school girl and Conception the Spanish waitress - as she entertains with bravado and a sparkling spirit.

Written and performed by Elaine Pantling, with direction by Isabel Ford. “Gently poignant yet always witty... the pathos never once threatens to strip away the comedy.” The Stage
