Directed by Michael Grandage, the self-penned show allows Dawn to take audiences through the various lessons life has taught her, with fun, frolics, trials and tribulations along the way! Her extraordinary lack of willpower, combined with an enviable knack for nosey parking and showing off, has driven her to grapple with the big stuff of life in public.

Dawn says; “I’m sick with excitement about this solo tour. I am enjoying the fact that I can’t categorise exactly what it is, but it’s somewhere between a monologue, a play, and an autobiographical slide show with a few funnies thrown in. At last, I have one of my three genie wishes granted, which is that I finally get to work with Michael Grandage. The other two wishes are as yet unfulfilled. They are secret obviously, but suffice to say, one is about Barack Obama in Speedos. The other is about me in speedos, with cheesecake involved… Enough said.”

30 Million Minutes (which is how long Miss French has been alive for) produced by Phil McIntyre Entertainments will be showing at the Palace Theatre on Tuesday 28th October, grab your ticket now because Dawn French is convinced it won’t be long before she is far too doolally to perform it.
