BIG READ: Oh yes it is! The great British pantomime season begins

Have your say

Award-winning actor, best-selling novelist and comedian Dawn French is set to bring her debut solo show, based on her life and career, to the Kings Theatre.

In 30 Million Minutes Dawn takes audiences through the various lessons life has taught her and the things she thinks she knows for sure.

Her extraordinary lack of willpower, combined with an enviable knack for nosey parking and showing off, have driven Dawn to grapple with the big stuff of life in public, 30 million minutes of life in fact as that’s how long she’s been alive.

The new show will be directed by award-winning theatre director and producer Michael Grandage and Dawn is thoroughly looking forward to the experience.

Dawn says: ‘I’m sick with excitement about this solo tour. I’m 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.’

Dawn French – 30 Million Minutes plays at the Kings Theatre, Southsea on Friday October 24 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available now priced £35–£39.50.
