Half brown, half white, half a century old and half a Shirley Bassey tribute act – it’s no wonder Sonia’s mid-life crisis is one to sing about! With her overbearing mother’s memory still haunting her with songs and sequins, it’s time for Sonia to dance to her own rhythm.

When the half-brother she never knew she had turns up out of the blue, Sonia launches into a journey of discovery, music and family as she enters her second act channelling her inner Shirley Bassey and Bhangra tunes.

Glitterball tells Sonia’s story with live music, cross-cultural comedy and a whole lotta a sparkle.

More Bassey than Bhangra...
