Theatre : Kathleen Ferrier Whattalife!
Entry Requirements: 16+
Kathleen Ferrier Whattalife! is a new one woman play with music. It tells the story of the great English contralto, whose voice and recordings are treasured to this day. Just like Kathleen during her short but full life, the show has a great sense of fun and talks straight from the heart. Professional actress and contralto, Lucy Stevens has researched and created a unique and totally engaging performance. The play is written in Kathleen’s own words taken from her letters and diaries. Sung music from her repertoire is woven through the text.
Reviews: Lucy Stevens is brilliant, has Kathleen Ferrier perfectly and is a fine musician too. Christopher Fifield, conductor and editor of Letters and Diaries of Kathleen Ferrier
