The Importance of Being Miriam
State Theatre Company South Australia and Andrew McKinnon Productions presents
The Importance of Being Miriam

7 Apr 2015 to 11 Apr 2015

She’s back! After both conquering and falling in love with Adelaide during the 2014 season of Neighbourhood Watch, the irrepressible Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter movies, Dickens’ Women, Blackadder, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries), simply one of the greatest actresses in the world, joins us for a very special and entertaining show.

On this world premiere Australian tour, Miriam brings to the stage some of literature’s best known characters. Lady Bracknell (The Importance of Being Earnest), Mrs Malaprop (The Rivals), Jane Austen’s Lady Catherine de Bourgh (Pride and Prejudice), Miss Havisham (Great Expectations), and Mrs Corney and Mr Bumble from Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, are amongst the unforgettable figures that will be brought to life by the award-winning star of stage and screen.

The Importance of Being Miriam will also feature fascinating insights into Miriam’s love of great literature and its characters, along with personal reflections from her rich and distinguished career and her new life as an Australian citizen.

Miriam is joined by her regular collaborator, acclaimed classical pianist John Martin, who will also delight audiences with a selection of popular music and songs. The production will be directed by Peter J Adams, who has also devised stage shows for Sir David Attenborough and Professor Brian Cox.

This is a strictly limited season of six performances only and is destined to sell out. State Theatre Company subscribers have the exclusive opportunity to take advantage of a special offer in advance of tickets going on sale to the general public in early 2015.
