Very happy to have reviewed the opening night of posting Letters to the Moon last night as it starts a tour that takes in Wimbourne, Guildford, Chipping Norton, Malvern and Devizes.
Oh, what a lovely, love-filled, heartwarming evening you will have with Posting Letters To The Moon. Opening night at Bath’s Ustinov Studio (Theatre Royal) looked like a full house for this charming legacy of a show.
But where to start? You could come into this piece through so many different doors. A Brief Encounter fan? An Archers addict? Maybe you’re a soul who loves the “letters from” format, or even “an audience with-“? Perhaps you’re an incurable ’39-’45 nostalgiac?
Whichever door works for you, this space is as welcoming and nourishing as you could possibly want. Huge congrats to Lucy Fleming and Simon Williams – and their family – for sharing these letters in such a generous way. More …
Lucinda Holloway, star of Glitter Knickers at the Rondo Theatre
Glitter Knickers is proving (on the evidence of two nights) to be something people like! We had another smashing audience, with a very large “on the door” queue. I hope you’ll indulge my sharing some feedback – and if it inspires you to come, that would be wonderful – just tonight & Saturday (4/5 March) left! Book here.
“Hilarious, beautifully observed, artfully written. Go.”
“Go and see Glitter Knickers: it’s brilliant!!”
“Great night out. Very, very funny show.”
“Blown away! Funny real clever moving.”
“A tour de force in writing & performance -catch it.”
“Hugely enjoyed Glitter Knickers: great script, perfect casting and laugh out loud funny.”
“It really is fantastic and will resonate with women everywhere. Made me laugh continuously.”
“You are a consummate storyteller Gill and this play is a romp through the imagination and Lucinda created such visual imagery. It was a joy! Huge congratulations to all involved. Thank you for a great night at the theatre.”
We made the front page of Bath Chronicle’s arts guide – in the week of the Literary Festival, with Brian Blessed, Caitlin Moran, Gloria Steinem & Jamie Cullum! We open tonight (Wed 2 March) & run til Sat 5th. Tickets are selling very healthily, so you won’t be surprised when I recommend you to book!

What have we started? Much fun being had in rehearsals for next week’s Glitter Knickers at the glorious Rondo Theatre: Wed 2 – Sat 5 March, 8pm.
Are there tickets in your box yet? Just one wee click here and your trip to limbo and back is secure.
OK – IT’S SHOW TIME!
The new show can be unveiled!
It’s called Glitter Knickers, it’s on for just 4 nights in March, here in Bath and it’s a comedy about being in your early middle age. Tickets have just gone on sale and the theatre (the gorgeous Rondo, with comfy seats for just over 100 and a dandy bar) have agreed to do a promo deal for me.
So the dates: 2-5 March at the fantastic Rondo Theatre in Bath.
And if you’re buying before midnight on 31 December, you can get 10% off with the promo code GLITTER.
If I can get bums on all the seats, it means our arts council / funding applications to take this out on tour will be much stronger, so please, if you think you fancy it, do book now (those of you who know me know I’ll be relentlessly touting ’til they are all sold, so don’t put it off!)
Hope to see you in March, if not before!
Happy Christmas and have a great 2015.
