Joan Collins Unscripted will see audiences enthralled and titillated as Dame Joan reveals some of the exciting stories and secrets from her life long career. This ageless beauty, with dry wit and a wry, knowing smile, who became a household name during the 80’s on the long running US soap Dynasty will present an intimate first person narrative, of a behind the scenes tell all on her life, loves and Hollywood, delivered with her usual healthy cynicism and fun outlook.
As an author and actress, Joan’s own delightful tales can easily compete with the most salacious of storylines. Her show will include an audience question and answer session. This show provides fans with a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend an entertaining and unforgettable evening in the company of a true legend of stage and screen.
Originally RADA trained, British born Dame Joan first appeared on the big screen in 1950’s Hollywood, where her classical stage training prepared her for some major movie roles. In the late 70’s she appeared as a sexy siren in The Bitch and The Stud, written by her sister, the award winning novelist Jackie Collins. Moving from big screen to TV in the early 80’s, Joan joined the cast of Dynasty with a lead role in the show that earned her a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a Golden Globe Award.
In 2015 Collins was made a Dame. In the years that have followed Joan has toured her ‘Audience With’ shows, returned to stage and screen, including playing the fictitious Queen Mother in the E! spoof soap The Royals. She is the patron of numerous charitable activities including campaigns for Unicef and has her own Timeless Beauty cosmetics range. 2018 will see Dame Joan join the cast of American Horror Story.
Theatre Director Joanne Johnson says: “Wow, what an honour it is to welcome Hollywood icon Dame Joan Collins to our stage! She is an incredible woman and this show will be an unforgettable experience. We have another screen legend, Brian Blessed with us in September for ‘An Evening With’ so it’s looking to be a very exciting month! I’m so glad we can bring these shows to our stage so that the people of Newcastle can enjoy an evening in the company of their heroes in our beautiful, intimate theatre.”
