You’re Not Like the Other Girls Chrissy

Sold out

Winner of The Stage Awards Best Solo Performance, Edinburgh Festival 2010

January 1945. Paris has been liberated. Christiane, an eccentric and acutely myopic Parisian waits at Gare Du Nord for a ticket to England to be reunited with her fiancé. Whilst she waits, this gloriously irrepressible mademoiselle recounts the story of her love affair with Cyril, a tongue-tied English teacher from Staffordshire. From a chance encounter at Cheadle tennis club, their story takes us to cosmopolitan 1930s Paris before war interrupts their unlikely romance.

A fond, comical and ultimately poignant portrait of one woman’s experience of love and war, inspired by Horton’s discovery of her grandmother’s war time correspondence.

You’re Not Like the Other Girls Chrissy is performed as part of a double bill alongside Sabrina Mahfouz’s Dry Ice
