Following a sold out run in 2011, the Menier Chocolate Factory welcome backs groundbreaking ventriloquist Nina Conti, working on brand new material for her new show for 5 performances only, from Tuesday 15th – Saturday 19th May. This material will form the basis of Nina's new show, Dolly Mixtures at the Pleasance Dome 1st - 27th August as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Nina introduces her daughter, her handyman, her local laundry proprietor, her oldest friend and a stray dog in a show that refuses to go as rehearsed. Expect a thoughtful mediation on love, life and The Edge of existence. And once you've bought your ticket, let that expectation go.
