Hilarious and drenched in copious amounts of hairspray and pathos, Pamela’s Palace is ‘an outstanding sitcom comic creation’ (★★★★ The Scotsman). Pamela is the hard won queen of a buzzing beauty salon, Tiffany Rose her award-winning stylist, and Bronwyn their junior assistant, but secrets behind the glamour are revealed. With all the drama of a Mike Leigh and the sparkle of Strictly Ballroom, this brilliant trio celebrate the vulnerability and strength of anyone trying to make their way in an unforgiving world.
So hold on to your Prosecco and embrace these dry-witted women with ‘big hair, big personality and lots of laughter’ (FringeReview). ‘The evening is a riot as three talented performers pout and strut their way through some dazzling choreography’ (★★★★★BroadwayBaby).
Pamela Jones, high priestess salon owner and beauty therapist extraordinaire, the ruler of her roost. But behind the glamour, there are secrets that threaten to bring the walls of her suburban palace crumbling down. With all the drama of a Mike Leigh and the sparkle of Strictly Ballroom, three hilarious women celebrate the vulnerability and strength of everyone trying to make their way in an unforgiving world. Pamela’s Palace is an interactive comedy staged in a Grecian-themed beauty salon. The audience are handpicked by the cast to participate in the momentous ‘Salon of the Year Competition’ under the watchful eye of salon owner, Pamela Jones.
Completing the trio, Tiffany Rose and Bronwyn Mill deploy a series of chaotic and calamitous improvisations in a hilarious exposé of western beauty standards.
The audience witness the strength and vulnerability of these three fabulous characters as they navigate their way through the cultural implications of being ‘beautiful’.
With original music and choreography, this riotous comedy unravels over the course of the competition and ends in the climactic demise of the set-design and Pamela Jones’s dream of being the next Trevor Sorbet.
Pamela’s Palace was written and devised by Donna Gray, Katie Grace Cooper and Ayesha Tansey and directed by Mella Faye with the support of Imagination Workshop and Interactive Theatre International.
‘The message which shines through the mayhem is a positive one – that women should stick together and that no-one’s self image should be about pleasing others’ The Scotsman
