ADMISSION ONE SHILLING
TWO OF THE BEST SHARE THE STAGE.
INSPIRATIONAL, HUMOROUS AND HIGHLY ENTERTAINING.
Award-winning actress Patricia Routledge – best known as Hyacinth Bucket in Keeping up Appearances – stars alongside renowned classical pianist Piers Lane to tell the inspiring story of Dame Myra Hess in Admission: One Shilling.
Adapted from interviews given by the legendary pianist and interspersed with short piano pieces by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Beethoven and Bach, this captivating production will transport audiences back to the morale-boosting recitals at London’s National Gallery which Dame Myra produced during World War II.
Direct from the UK and for the first time in Australia, Admission: One Shilling will delight audiences with its unique power to uplift the human spirit.
