Dietrich: Natural Duty

  • Unity Theatre Hope Place L1 9BG (map)

As part of Homotopia Festival 2018

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 an acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival and was a sold-out hit at VAULT Festival 2018- catch it before it’s London transfer this Autumn.

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


Created and performed by Peter Groom.
Co-written and directed by Oliver Gully.
