Town Hall, Wirksworth

A derwent theatre production

In 1960, the 20 year old Virginia Wilson left England with a dream and twenty pounds in her pocket. In Los Angeles she found stardom in movies and television, huge wealth, eight husbands and a lifestyle beyond imagination. Now, defrauded by her latest husband and short of funds, Virginia has to return to England to work.

'DIVA' is set in a dressing room of the Timothy Dalton Theatre in Derby. As Virginia prepares for the first day of rehearsal, a telephone call turns her day upside down.

'DIVA' has been written by Belper playwright George Gunby. His performed plays include 'Boleyn', 'Mind Games' and 'The Passion'.

"We have an astonishing cast with Kay Facer Swann, Sali Gresham and Mik Horvath. They are hugely talented and experienced. I think the audiences are in for a treat," said Director Fliss Goldsmith, who regularly works in Wirksworth with her children's theatre company Flippan C Creative.

By the way, if you can't make the Wirksworth performance DIVA will be performed at the Assembly Rooms, Melbourne (22 April), Pavilion, Matlock Bath (June 3) and the Ritz Cinema, Belper (9 /10 June).
