Details

Dreamcast Productions is delighted to visit the beautiful St. George's Theatre with an intimate evening of the spellbinding songs and heartrending journey through the life and loves of ‘The Little Sparrow', Edith Piaf.

Born in poverty in 1915, and named after Norfolk 's own Edith Cavell, the little girl from the backstreets of Paris grew up to become France 's most beloved and iconic songstress. From her early years singing in the streets of Paris, to discovery, intrigue, fame and heartbreak, the show features Edith's most memorable and moving numbers of love, loss and storytelling, sung in both French and English.

Including the music of her fellow chanteur and friend Charles Aznavour, 'Non, Je ne Regrette Rien' pays tribute to France ’s most enduring musical icon. Edith's indomitable spirit and emotion, her meteoric rise to fame, tumultuous and tragic personal life, and death at just 47 years old, captivated the world and secures her place in the hearts of a nation.

'Non, Je ne Regrette Rien' includes ‘La Vie en Rose', ‘Mon Dieu’, ‘Hymn to Love’, 'Padam Padam', ‘Milord’, 'She', ‘Autumn Leaves’ and many others, in the story of a unique woman, heart and voice. A singular evening of nostalgia and romance.

Quotes:
“Ms Hewitt sings with passion, versatility and charisma, and captivates her audience”

“This show is a triumph, and deserves a wider audience”

“.......instantly becoming the tortured ‘Little Sparrow’ herself”

“Went to the Theatre last night and saw Piaf…...felt I had to contact you and say how totally glorious the evening was…haven’t enjoyed a show like yours in quite a while…what talent. Absolutely marvellous…thank you both”

“Mr Rees brings his considerable presence to the stage, his wonderful voice now in its prime portrays Charles Aznavour giving us a carefully moderated and generous performance”.

“My mother, who is French, loved it, she said your performance captured the spirit of Piaf more than any she has seen”
