“It’s slick, it’s funny, but it is also… nudging us towards a question: how to be good, in a world such as this?” – The Guardian

Charity may be down, but she is never out. Persistently optimistic, unfailingly upbeat, our indomitable dancehall dreamer carves out a place in her world where she is seen and heard and valued on her own terms.

A perennial favorite, with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and book by Tony-Dramatist Desk-Golden Globe-Emmy winner Neil Simon, this ruefully comic story with its heart-of-gold heroine has the perfect combination of heart and edge for Live Arts to celebrate.
