Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis

Witness an outlandish and tantalising play, which is a racy celebration of the mavericks of life! Featuring an Elvis soundtrack and scenes that evoke side-splitting fits of laughter, this is the ideal Christmas treat for adults.

Why You Should Watch Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis

Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis is written by Charlotte Jones. She is famous for her play Humble Boy at the National Theatre, which won the Pearson Best Play Award in 1998. On its 21st anniversary, she is showcasing her first-ever London production collaborating with the Signal Theatre Company, a company well-known for its masterful comedic productions.

The play is a slapstick comedy that is peppered with family drama. Showcasing artful and witty writing, the play is bound to keep you in peals of laughter. It is a boisterous play that studies the complexities of ageing, and what people do to make themselves more desirable. Gemma Fairlie’s direction ensures that not a single comic beat is missed, and there is a harmonious engagement between the technical bits and the performance, getting the audience completely immersed in the show. The play has beautiful shifts in tone and mood, and is full of life, making the audience fall in love with the characters.

The Story

Follow the story of Josie, a mother who works as a dominatrix to scrape by, and her daughter Brenda-Marie. Josie is tired of life and is sick of looking after her daughter, who seems to daydream all the time. She has no interest in celebrating her 40th birthday.

However, her best-loved client forces her to have a birthday. He knows that Josie is a die-hard fan of Elvis, so he calls for a remarkable guest. Just as soon as the party starts and everyone is dancing, they are greeted by someone quite unexpected, resulting in a hilarious uproar.
