Yootha

Actress/writer Caroline Burns Cooke – creator of And the Rope Still Tugging Her Feet (Argus Angel for Outstanding Theatre and Outstanding Individual Performer at Prague Fringe) and Proxy (Infallibles Award nominee for Outstanding Theatre and Ike Award winner for Best Solo Show) – returns with her third show to examine the life of glamorous sitcom legend Yootha Joyce, directed by Mark Farrelly (Quentin Crisp-Naked Hope and The Silence of Snow).

Adored by friends and fans alike, but hiding acute alcoholism from those closest to her, she lit up the screen as Mildred Roper in Man about the House and George and Mildred, dying at the height of her fame at only 53.
Could have been worse. Could have been a wet Wednesday at Rhyl Rep.

‘Burns Cooke is a superb actress…a play that transcends its subject’- The Wee Review ★★★★
