Signs of a Diva  theatre finished

Presented in partnership with Arts & Disability Ireland

No one remembers mousey old Sue, the undertaker from Bingley Bridge.  No one knows she’s a Diva fanatic, until one day she is offered a cabaret spot at Harry’s Place.  Overnight, Tammy Frascati is born and Sue finds herself hurtling to stardom and Las Vegas, signing the songs of her favourite Divas, Billie Holiday, Dusty Springfield, Ella Fitzgerald & Gloria Gaynor.

But, as success beckons a handsome stranger pierces Sue’s heart.  What does she do? Can she have both?

Caroline Parker gives a virtuoso performance as Sue and her alter ego Tammy as she takes us on a journey of fame, frocks and false eyelashes battling with true love from Bingley Bridge.

For an evening of DIVA hits, transformed through the medium of signed song, you will be touched by the poignancy of Tammy’s journey from funeral parlour, to stardom and lost love. All performances include signed songs, captioned text and audio description.

Supported by The Arts Council, the British Council and Xilinx Inc.
