The most successful Aussie actor you’ve never heard of!
From West Footscray to West End star, Coral Browne was larger-than-life.
A renowned acting talent, Coral was almost as famous for her bawdy wit, her glamour, her string of famous lovers and her marriage to Vincent Price.
In this critically acclaimed one-woman play, Genevieve Mooy (Rosehaven, The Dish, Frontline) is Coral Browne. She revisits her colourful life and sparkling career – including Auntie Mame, The Killing of Sister George, An Englishman Abroad – putting this Grande Dame back in the spotlight where she belongs.
