Mrs Pat

Designed by Simon Higlett.

Written by Anton Burge
Directed by Alan Strachan

Dame Penelope Keith returns to the Minvera Theatre in Chichester to perform the leading role in a one-woman play MRS PAT,  with the official opening on Thursday 15th October 2015. 

Legendary nineteenth-century actress Mrs Patrick Campbell has seen it, and been it, all. From her ground-breaking Hedda Gabler on the London stage, to leads on Broadway and heroines in Hollywood, Mrs Pat has travelled the globe playing the most passionate and rebellious roles. And it was not just on the stage she was witty, witful and wild. Her off-stage life was equally dramatic. As flame, muse and equal to George Bernard Shaw, she inspired, and played, the very first Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion.
Financial hardship, artistic rejection, romantic loss and the agonising trials of aging, could not defeat this brave bohemian. But now, facing Europe's darkest hours, and with the Nazi Party closing in on Paris, MRS PAT and her beloved dog, Moonbeam, stand before the unknown. 
As she waits to escape to rural France, this remarkable artist is determined not to go lightly, as she recalls, for one last time, the highs and lows of a defiant and daring life. 

Anton Burge's play is a funny and moving tribute to the power of performance and the remarkable resilient spirit of actresses everywhere.

Once again All Scene was chosen to build another fantastic set for the Minerva Theatre, another interesting design by Award-winning designer Simon Higlett. Take a look at some workshop photos below.
