What to expect…
Performance avalanche and avant guardian David Hoyle invites you to join the crème de la crème for an evening of thrilling pedagogy.
In THE PRIME OF MS DAVID HOYLE, the legendary performer takes on the persona of esteemed educator Ms David Hoyle, whose academy for girls takes pride in offering amusement, provocation and inspiration for dark times.
Ms Hoyle feels things deeply. She is never wrong. And she has the loyalty of her girls.
Ms Hoyle will wax electric on themes including but not limited to truth, beauty, art, charisma, discipline, team spirit, fascism and common sense. Expect an up-close-and-personal multimedia extravaganza in which acerbic and radical wit combines with a deep love of the outsider.
Ms Hoyle is joined on stage by ‘teaching assistant’ and lingering 60s icon Simone Simone, and graduates of the prestigious Carnesky’s Finishing School and Duckie Homosexualist Summer School for young queer performers.
Produced and directed by cabaret critic and producer Ben Walters, THE PRIME OF MS DAVID HOYLE takes its cue from The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Muriel Spark’s iconic 1961 novel about a charismatic teacher, later adapted into a 1969 film starring Maggie Smith and a 1978 TV series starring Geraldine McEwan.
It shall be an education.
