ALL I WANT IS ONE NIGHT

ALL I WANT IS ONE NIGHT

An intoxicating new play with songs about the life and music of 1930s gay cabaret sensation Suzy Solidor, played by Jessica Walker.

'Walker's pure, bright mezzo-soprano is of such melting beauty I think I could listen to it forever’ – New York Times 2013

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, her past and present begin to collide: she encounters lovers, artists, her absent father, and finally herself.

You can see and hear Jessica Walker singing the title song from the show here:
