About the showAward-winning actor, best-selling author and much-loved comedian Dawn French has returned to the West End stage this October for a strictly limited final one week run of her hugely acclaimed show 30 Million Minutes.
This truly is the last opportunity to see the leading lady of British Comedy perform a show that astounded audiences and critics alike when it was first performed. 30 Million Minutes takes the audience on an intimate journey through the various delights and hilarious moments of Dawn French’s life, as well as the lessons she has learnt and the loss she has experienced.
Both devastatingly moving and unbelievably funny, the performance is Dawn French at her very best, exhibiting her sharp eye for the ridiculousness and hilarity in life, as well as taking a deeply introspective look into what has shaped her as a person, sharing how she has mistakenly been trying her whole life to heartily attempt to become a fully functioning female human.
With her self-confessed lack of willpower, her knack for prying and showing off, Dawn takes on the big questions of life in public, following her 30 million minutes she has spent living it (more or less). She dissects the scrutiny she has consistently faced in the media regarding her body (Is she too fat? Has she lost too much weight?) and marvels at how one woman can relentlessly murder so much chocolate, yet still remain peculiarly slim?
Dawn French is one of the great icons of British comedy, known for her many years working with her comedy partner Jennifer Saunders on the hilarious French and Saunders sketch show, as well as starring in the lead role in Richard Curtis’ classic sitcom The Vicar of Dibley.
Dawn French has donned her lucky pants and headed to the Vaudeville Theatre for the final ever six performances of this magnificent show between the 18th and 22nd October 2016.
