Teresa Jennings Stars in Off the Fence Theatre's ENGLAND EXPECTS in London, Now thru May 10

Off the Fence Theatre Company in association with Curve presents England Expects by Tom Glover, today 6 to Saturday 10 May at 7.45pm. Press Night: Wednesday 7 May at 7.45pm.

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 the First World 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. Through her stock-in trade of impersonation and songs Vesta explores her role in the war and the impact of her choices on those left behind.

This one woman, twelve character play features many of Vesta's most well-known songs such as Jolly Good Luck to the Girl Who Loves a Soldier and I've Got a Bit of a Blighty One. England Expects is a fascinating exploration of a controversial time and character.

The show stars Teresa Jennings and will play the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre, 410 Brockley Road, London, SE4 2DH. Box Office: www.brockleyjack.co.uk or 0333 666 3366 (£1.50 fee for online bookings only). The show plays Tuesday 6 to Saturday 10 May 2014. Performances at 7.45pm. Tickets: £14, £11 concessions.
