Amanda Muggleton This F*cking Lady

Grande dame, adventuress, beauty, wit... the flamboyant Coral Browne travelled a world away from her humble Australian beginnings to become the toast of the London stage in the 1940s.

Sexually adventurous, with a deliciously bawdy wit, Coral was as well known for her glamorous lifestyle as she was for her memorable stage and screen performances (Auntie Mame, The Killing of Sister George, Dennis Potter’s Dreamchild and Alan Bennett’s An Englishman Abroad). She had a string of famous lovers, including Paul Robeson and Maurice Chevalier, and enjoyed a late-life marriage to the king of schlock horror, Vincent Price.

In the Australian premiere of this critically-acclaimed one-woman play, the wonderful Amanda Muggleton (The Book Club, Hollyoaks, Prisoner Cell Block H) brings Coral Browne to sparkling life and puts this Grande Dame back in the spotlight where she belongs.

Coral Browne is proof that while good girls go to
heaven, naughty girls go everywhere!

‘A delightful, surprising show – a must see!’ Miriam Margolyes

'Wise, funny and immensely entertaining! ★★★★★' Glam Adelaide
