Synopsis


It is 1942, on the battlefields of North Africa, in a gold sequin gown, Marlene Dietrich takes to the stage to launch her own offensive against the German Reich.


For the next three years she would fight the war her way, with an irresistible mix of songs, sequins, sex and sympathy.


An intoxicating mix of theatre, cabaret and drag, this new one-(wo)man show by Peter Groom, created for VAULT Festival 2018, uses music, stories and songs - including Falling in Love Again, Lili Marlene, Where have all the Flowers gone?, Boys in the Backroom, Lola, The Laziest Girl in Town - to reveal a Hollywood icon's extraordinary commitment to duty.
