Sell out, award-nominated ‘Saving Britney’ is coming to Huddersfield on its 12 venue tour around the UK before making its New York debut
The tour will arrive at The Lawrence Batley Theatre on the 11 and 12 February as well as venues around the country such as Birmingham’s The Old Joint Stock Theatre, Blackpool’s The Old Electric and Manchester’s The Hope Mill.
The show will explore the influence of Britney Spears through the character Jean – a Britney obsessed superfan. The performance was inspired by the #FreeBritney movement.
It has been called hilarious yet heartbreaking. The play explores themes of celebrity obsession, sexuality and throws back to the nostalgia of growing up in the early noughties.
The production is a collaborative effort by the award-winning performer Shereen Roushbaiani (BBC’s Doctors, Pride and Prejudice The Panto, Mummylogues) and writer/director David Shopland (A Dream Of Dying, Into Thin Air, The Little Mermaid).
The running time is 70 minutes, contains strong language, uses flashing lights and the age guidance is 12+. The play is coming to Huddersfield this month on the 11 and 12 of February at the Lawrence Batley Theatre.
