England Expects

Developed in association with Curve Theatre, Leicester



Directed by Gary Phillpott
Starring Teresa Jennings (UK tour)

Vesta Tilley was music hall’s greatest male impersonator. Vesta’s role in recruiting thousands of men made her the darling of the establishment but as the brutal reality of war became known, whose side was she really on?

Sitting in her dressing room on her farewell tour she reminisces on her role as Britain’s Best Recruiting Sergeant and the lives she touched.

This is a play with songs for one actor playing twelve roles.


“England Expects dispenses humour and pathos in equal measure.” - See the full review
