Marie Lloyd, Queen Of The Halls on BBC Radio4 Extra on Saturday 8th Feb
After collapsing on stage one day in 1922, Marie Lloyd lies dying, battered by life, drink and hard work.
Raunchy to the end, the great music hall star recalls her songs, her audiences, her triumphs and disasters.
Steve Trafford’s adaptation of his stage play stars Elizabeth Mansfield , who played Marie in the original one-woman show.
It is broadcast on BBC Radio4 Extra on Saturday 8th February at 6am and again at 4pm and on Sunday 9th February at 4am!
Elizabeth performed her one-woman play on Marie at the British Music Hall Society’s very first Day By The Sea in 2015
