Don’t miss the opening tonight of MARTHA, JOSIE AND THE CHINESE ELVIS with ANNA WHEATLEY and JOHN BRANWELL, at Hull Truck theatre 11th Feb – 5th March and also at Octagon theatre Bolton 10th March – 6th April.
Described by the Financial Times as “one of our most accomplished and entertaining young playwrights”. Heartfelt, poignant, and funny in equal measure, Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis captures the glimmer of promise and potential that lies in all of us – shining a spotlight on the opportunities that are out there, if only we choose to take them.
In a suburban semi on a cold winter’s evening, a collection of family, friends and acquaintances gather to celebrate a birthday. There’s Josie, the ageing dominatrix conducting business from her living room and in no mood to celebrate; her daughter Brenda-Marie with a wisdom beyond her years; Martha – Josie’s devout Irish cleaner who’s none the wiser and happy to keep it that way; and, of course, Lionel – Josie’s most loyal client with a heart of gold and a secret yearning to wear ladies dresses.
