A Woman Left Lonely – (a touring production by Hyde Festival Theatre)

Saturday 30th March, 2019
7:30 pm

A Woman Left Lonely Poster No venue V5The songs and sadness of Janis Joplin.

Hyde Festival Theatre presents this new musical play which it commissioned from award winning writer Rob Johnston, from an original concept by Peter Wright.

The play takes us to the last few months of the life of 1960’s icon, Janis Joplin. Janis tragically died from a drug overdose on October 4th 1970 at the age of 27. She shunned the inward looking, conformist life of Port Arthur, Texas, where she always felt she was an outsider, to become one of rock music’s greatest ever performers who is still revered today. Featuring 14 songs from her back catalogue, this one woman musical play takes on the emotional roller coaster that was Janis Joplin’s life.

Janis will be played by Linzi Matthews whose credits include Blood Brothers (West End & national tour), Loot at Hull Truck and at Oldham Coliseum in their hugely popular pantomimes. Her TV credits include Coronation St and Warriors.

It premiered at Hyde Festival Theatre in September 2018, where it received standing ovations every night.

Tickets will cost £10 and are available through Ticketsource and Bay Tree Books.
