Comedy, cabaret, chanteuse Miss Hope Springs plays the piano and sings an array of acclaimed all-original numbers from her repertoire of ridiculously catchy self-penned songs, and tells scandalous stories from her ‘Ritz to the pits’ life in London, Paris, and erm…Dungeness (where she lives with her husband Irving and his close hairdresser pal Carlos in a camper van).

Still wearing the sequinned pantsuits she left Las Vegas wearing in 1972, you’ll hear her unique brand of toe tapping show tunes, smouldering ballads and hysterical comedy numbers, as she once again rummages through the magical musical mementos within her, by now somewhat battered, suitcase of dreams.

This ‘smash hit laugh out loud - move you to tears show’ (Broadway World) has won numerous awards including Best Cabaret Edinburgh Fringe and Best Cabaret Brighton Fringe and is written and performed by composer, lyricist and comic actor Mr Ty Jeffries. Ty, the son of the late screen legend Lionel Jeffries, grew up in Tinseltown and was educated at The Purcell School of Music.

Written & performed by, music and lyrics by Ty Jeffries
