The poet, T.S. Eliot, described Marie Lloyd as: ‘The greatest music hall artist of all time.’ She was the first, great, female ‘stand-up’ comedian, the darling of the Victorian Music Halls. Featuring some of her bestloved songs, Elizabeth Mansfield’s critically acclaimed performance got her an Olivier Award nomination and beautifully captures Lloyd’s irrepressible talent, as well as the hidden struggles of a truly remarkable woman.  ‘Mansfield is brilliant. Uproarious laughter, often tears…a celebration heart-warming in its humanity’ Sunday Telegraph
The proceeds from this performance will be donated
to Theatre by the Lake’s work with young people.
