Music & Theatre / Festivals / Arts & Culture Nothing Like a Dame Jessica Walker & Joseph Atkins

About this event

Event info

From the ‘handbag’ of Edith Evans to Judi Dench’s Send in the Clowns, Dames of the Realm have lit up the world of entertainment with a myriad of iconic and unforgettable moments.

In a celebration of these wonderful first ladies of music and theatre, Associate Artist Jessica Walker pictured (who is nothing like a Dame) and Joseph Atkins (who has never played a Dame…yet!) recreate songs, speeches and anecdotes made famous by a stellar line-up of Dames across the years.

Expect Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Sondheim, Rodgers and Hart… and there might even be a bit of Bake Off – as our Associate Artist since 2021 makes the first of her two Festival 2024 appearances
