1 Comedy meets cabaret in the studio bar to kick off the weekend with Miss Hope Springs in this self-titled show. A chanteuse down on her luck, the ‘recovering show girl’ plays the piano accompanying herself singing lurid tales from her delightfully tarnished career. A splendid way to put your own working week to bed.
