Joyce Grenfell was known and loved all over the world for her monologues, her songs, and her comic writing. Her career, which spanned more than 30 years, saw her work in many different areas. From wartime entertainment tours to performances on radio, stage, and screen, all were graced with Joyce's usual charm, humour, and talent.
"A delight from beginning to end!"
A poignantly funny retrospective of the genteel wit of broadcaster, comedienne, poet and entertainer, Joyce Grenfell, superbly performed by Maureen Lipman and heard on BBC Radio 3. Together with the creative team that produced the stage show, ReJoyce, Maureen perfectly recreates the much-loved material of the late, great Joyce Grenfell.
Hats Off is the delightful reading by Maureen Lipman of a selection of poems by Joyce Grenfell. Known and loved for her inimitable songs and monologues, Joyce Grenfell's first earnings came from her poetry, which she wrote throughout her life. These poems are full of the wit and observation that are the hallmarks of the monologues that made her name. They are perceptive, witty, and amusing and a great reminder of a very talented lady.
