Glorious! The true story of Florence Foster Jenkins – The Worst Singer in the World @ Wharf Theatre Devizes
Set in 1940s New York, this hilarious farce is based on the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins. Dubbed ‘the worst singer in the world’, Florence nevertheless had thousands of adoring fans who attended her concerts and bought her recordings. This play, which enjoyed a run in the West End with Maureen Lipman, takes a distinctly more farcical approach to its subject matter than the recent lm which starred Meryl Streep.
Directed by Liz Sharman. Runs until 30th October.
