Testament of Yootha
Written and Performed by Caroline Burns Cooke
Directed by Mark Farelly
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)
