Hope Mill Theatre

All I Want Is One Night

In the heady atmosphere of 1930s Paris, Suzy Solidor thrilled audiences with her performances of erotic lesbian songs. Painted or photographed by everybody from Man Ray to Bacon, she sang surrounded by her 225 portraits. This intimate show will transport you back to a night in her club at the height of her career. During an increasingly whisky-fuelled evening, as Suzy regales the audience with her most famous songs, past and present begin to collide:  she encounters past lovers, artists, her absent father and, finally, herself.

 After a sell-out world premiere at the Royal Exchange, and straight from a London run, ‘All I Want is One Night’ comes to Hope Mill Theatre for 9 performances only.

*Please note that due to the earlier performance of ‘The True History…’, audience members will not be able to enter the venue before 8.35pm for evening performances.*
