Whattalife! Kathleen Ferrier

Date: Fri 27 October
Time: 7:30pm to 9:30pm
Price: £12.50
Venue: Anthony Minghella Theatre

Whattalife! is a one woman play with music. Kathleen Ferrier was one of Britain’s phenomenal women of the 20th Century. Whattalife! tells her story from her debut as a singer in 1940, her meteoric rise and her tragic death in 1953.

Professional actress and contralto, Lucy Stevens has researched and created a unique and totally engaging performance, the text is taken straight from Kathleen’s letters and diaries. Sung music from her repertoire is woven through the text.

Whattalife! is the first staged dramatisation of Ferrier’s life, evoking the spirit of the war and post war years. Just like Kathleen during her short but full life, the show has a great sense of fun and talks straight from the heart.
