‘May you go on keeping the flame of Joyce alive’ wrote Joyce Grenfell’s pianist William Blezard to Jane Bower after Jane had visited him at his London home. She has been doing so since Joyce’s death, and now brings this newly reworked solo show north for the first time. Jane does not seek to imitate the much-loved actress so much as to introduce or reawaken memories of Joyce’s remarkable skill, personality and beliefs.
“Joyce - A Celebration” shows far more of Grenfell than ‘George – don’t do that’ and includes lesser known songs and monologues, humorous and serious, along with glimpses into her varied, vibrant and faith-filled life.
Jane Bower is a professional actress, writer and teacher who trained in Lancaster and lived there for many years. Now living in Cambridge, she brought her solo show ‘Daddy’s Diaries’ to a packed Heron Theatre in March 2017.
