A play with music by Pam Gems
‘I regret …. nothing!’
The hard hitting story of the legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf.
Born and raised on the streets of Paris ‘the little sparrow’ became a global sensation and one of the most celebrated singers of the 20th Century.
Interspersed with her most memorable songs, Pam Gem’s play was a phenomenon when it opened at the RSC in the late 1970’s. It transferred to Broadway and it’s star won the Tony Award for her incredible performance. That star was Jane Lapotaire, a ‘native’ of Ipswich who attended Northgate School in the town.
‘Piaf’ was full of dramatic highs and crashing lows, she sang of passion and despair in equal measure, and we were thrilled to bring you her story.
