Dawn goes solo in Grand style

Dawn French

She’s probably best known as half of French and Saunders, now Dawn French is going it alone with her first solo stand up tour – and she’s stopping off for four nights at the Grand Theatre in September.

An award-winning actor and best-selling novelist, Dawn has written a new show, based on her life and career, entitled 30 Million Minutes.  It promises “various delights and riches, with the odd irksome tribulation thrown in,” as Dawn takes audiences through the various lessons life has taught her, and the things she knows for sure.

With a sharp eye for comic detail and a wicked ear for the absurdities of life, Dawn French of Cornwall shares how she has misguidedly spent her whole life vigorously attempting to be a fully functioning female human.

Her extraordinary lack of willpower, combined with an enviable knack for nosey parkering and showing off, has driven her to grapple with the big stuff of life in public. 30 million minutes of life in fact – which is how long she’s been alive.

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.”

Catch the show. Or feel like a fool.

Dawn French, 30 Million Minutes, is at Blackpool Grand Theatre from September 3-6. Tickets start at £30.
