By Steve Trafford
Performed by Elizabeth Mansfield

The poet T S Eliot described Marie Lloyd as “the greatest music hall artist of all time”. Now she lives again as Olivier Award nominated Elizabeth Mansfield performs Marie: The Story of Marie Lloyd at York Theatre Royal on 28 November at 7.30pm.
This popular and celebrated show features all her famous songs including Don’t Dilly Dally on the Way, Oh! Mr Porter, A Little of What You Fancy Does You Good and The Boy I Love is Up in the Gallery.
Marie by Steve Trafford captures all the riotous fun and irrepressible talent, as well as the pain and anguish, of a truly remarkable woman. Elizabeth Mansfield received an Olivier Award nomination as Best Actress in a Musical for her performance of the show at the Fortune Theatre in London’s West End.
Earlier this year she appeared at York Theatre Royal in Hymn To Love – Homage to Piaf, a musical tribute to Edith Piaf. Previous appearances also include The Restoration of Nell Gwyn and A Cloud in Trousers.
All proceeds of ticket sales from this performance will make a vital contribution to the theatre’s ongoing work with people in our community.
