Created and performed by Peter Groom, this mixture of theatre, cabaret and drag comes to Wallingford after a critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival and seasons in London, Amsterdam, Liverpool etc.
Born in Berlin in 1901, Marie Magdalene “Marlene” Dietrich soon became a Hollywood legend. When World War II was declared, she renounced her German citizenship and joined the American Army to fight against her homeland in order to free her people from Hitler.
It is 1942. On the battlefields of North Africa, in a gold sequin gown, Marlene takes to the stage to fight the war her way, with an irresistible mix of songs, sequins, sex and sympathy.
