Testament of Yootha

Caroline Cooke

Adored by friends and fans alike, hiding acute alcoholism from those closest to her, lighting up the screen as Mildred Roper in Man about the House and George and Mildred, she died at the height of her fame at only 53.

Could have been worse. Could have been a wet Wednesday at Rhyl Rep.

Actress/writer Caroline Burns Cooke – creator of And the Rope Still Tugging Her Feet (Argus Angel for Outstanding Theatre and Outstanding Individual Performer at Prague Fringe) and Proxy (Infallibles Award nominee for Outstanding Theatre and Ike Award winner for Best Solo Show) – returns with her third show to examine the life of glamorous sitcom legend Yootha Joyce, directed by Mark Farrelly (Quentin Crisp-Naked Hope and The Silence of Snow)

Burns Cooke is a superb actress…a play that transcends its subject

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 

The Larkum Studio is accessed through the far side of the ADC Bar.

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
