Dinner! Darlings! Dinner!



#FindYour Funny, Escape, Story, Thrill, Talent

Welcome to the wonderful world of glamorous dining with ex Showgirl Sindy. A sparkling guest list, cocktails, canapés, and music (show tunes and pop), sprinkled with showbiz gossip. Time to don your Kaftan and delve in the 1970s when being a hostess really did mean the mostest. Will this dinner party be a dream come true for aspirational Sindy? Or will it turn into chaos?

Reviews


Josephine Pembroke’s one woman show featuring songs from Sondheim to Cy Coleman and Dorothy Field, blows the doors off

- Liz Hoggard, Arts Journalist

Josephine’s show is nostalgic and sometimes mournful, but always defiant.

- Robert Bathurst (Cold Feet, Downtown Abbey)

Captivating, Josephine knows how to hold the audience in the palm of her hand
