An intoxicating one-(wo)man show revealing the life of a legend. 

It is 1942. On the battlefields of North Africa in a gold sequin gown, Marlene Dietrich takes to the stage to fight the war her way; with an irresistible mix of songs, sequins, sex and sympathy.

This breathtaking mixture of theatre, cabaret and drag comes straight from the Edinburgh Festival and was a sold-out hit at VAULT Festival.

Fall in love again with this Hollywood icon and her extraordinary commitment to duty.
