Playing with the Famous Five

The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan

“At the age of thirty seven,
She realised she’d never ride
Through Paris in a sports car,
With the warm wind in her hair.”

Shel Silverstein

Red Earth Theatre in association with mac Birmingham

Famous Five 

Five characters

Five stories

Five lives overlapping

Once upon a time there were 5 girls whose glorious technicolor dreams were of adventure and romance. As the years passed, the dreams faded and their world turned to monochrome.

Full of raucous humour, heart-warming characters and torch songs for the lonesome, Famous Five is a perfectly delivered black comedy.

This is the story of what happens when you rediscover your dreams.

Expect miracles.
