Dawn French to embark on first solo tour

Dawn French, the British comic actress who portrayed the Fat Lady in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is set to embark on her first solo tour.

The award-winning actress and best-selling novelist has written a new show based on her life and career titled 30 Million Minutes. French said,

I’m sick with excitement about this solo tour. I am enjoying the fact that I can’t categorise exactly what it is, but it’s somewhere between a monologue, a play, and an autobiographical slide show with a few funnies thrown in.

The show, which will be directed by renowned theater director Michael Grandage, starts in Sheffield in June and runs until September.
