Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis Tickets

London Play
The London premiere of Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis comes to London's Park Theatre this Christmas!
Josie’s tired. Tired of the Bolton winter. Tired of looking after daydreaming daughter Brenda-Marie. Tired of working as a dominatrix to make ends meet. Too tired to celebrate turning forty. But her favourite client Lionel insists on a birthday party and, knowing Josie’s a huge Elvis fan, invites a very special guest. Just as hips start swinging, somebody no-one expected arrives and skeletons come tumbling out of the closet… Writer of Humble Boy (National Theatre) Charlotte Jones’ hilarious and heartfelt comedy about finding a place to fit in won the 1998 Pearson Best Play Award and, on its twenty-first anniversary, receives its first ever London production, from comedy specialists Signal Theatre Company. Quirky and kinky, and with a rocking Elvis soundtrack*, this sweet yet saucy celebration of life’s outsiders is the perfect ‘adults only’ alternative Christmas treat. (*NB: is NOT a musical!)

    This play was funny but also tackled more serious issues as well. All the characters had a shared amount of the story to tell. Well acted and well written.Worth braving the rain for

    Slow start but interwoven plots developed to make the play into a very interesting thought provoking piece
