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. Featuring monologues, sketches, songs and letters from the Grenfell archive, Choice Grenfell is a humorous and captivating collection from the writings of one of the century's most popular comediennes.
As a big fan of Joyce Grenfell's work Maureen Lipman captures this piece by making it her own but so much of Joyce just hanging in the air. Thoroughly enjoyed this and a nice easy listen with a giggle not far away

Maureen has got such a talent to mimic the voice of Joyce Grenfell, that it is hard to tell who is who, however, when Maureen sang a 'Joycie' song, you could here Maureen voice throughout, but that is nothing, compared to a chance to hear Nancy Astors niece-Joyce Grenfell!!
