One of the UK’s much-loved actresses and comedians will come to Cornwall as part of her one-woman show tour.

Dawn French will be bringing her Dawn French is a Huge Twat show to Hall for Cornwall in Truro between November 8 and 11.

The critically acclaimed show has already sold out at venues across the UK with her show in Cornwall expecting to do the same.

French is most known for her portrayal of Geraldine Granger in the BBC sitcom, The Vicar of Dibley. She has previously also been nominated for seven BAFTA TV Awards and won a BAFTA Fellowship alongside comedy partner Jenifer Saunders.

The Dawn French is a Huge Twat show will invite audiences to revel in the gaffes and howlers of a 40-year career as a comedian and actor.

French’s willingness to lay bare her imperfections is not new. Her last one-woman show, Thirty Million Minutes was a striking piece of theatre which explored the ups and downs of her life off-camera.

Speaking of her reason to do this tour, Dawn said: “My life now is about being true to myself and living in my own skin.

“I am 64 now and I know myself. For the most part, I like myself and I can do this tour at this stage of my career because I’m very happy to tell you all these idiotic things that I have thought and done.

“This show is about mistakes and how you learn from them. How do you process the humiliation of those moments and admit your mistakes?

“I’d go further and say enjoy them and ultimately wear them as your badges instead of hiding them.”

Michael Grandage, the director of both Thirty Million Minutes and Dawn French is a Huge Twat, explains part of Dawn’s appeal: “Nobody punctures the myth of celebrity better than Dawn. She’s very willing to show that she’s actually a person just like us, and one way she does that is by showing that she can make mistakes.”
