JOAN COLLINS returns to the West End with 'One Night With Joan' at Leicester Square Theatre


One Night With Joan

Joan Collins is to return to the West End with her acclaimed one woman show, One Night With Joan, to share more stories and secrets of her celebrated life and career as one of the world’s most glamorous and intriguing actresses.

Joan Collins - One Night With Joan plays at Leicester Square Theatre for just 6 performances between Friday 12 and Sunday 28 April. 

Press Night is Friday 12 April at 7.30pm

Joan Collins - One Night With Joan will also tour the UK to 9 theatres: Saturday 6 April, Royal & Derngate, Northampton; Sunday 7 April, The Swan, High Wycombe; Tuesday 16 April, G Live, Guildford; Wednesday 17 April, Orchard Theatre, Dartford; Friday 19 April, The Anvil, Basingstoke; Saturday 20 April, Town Hall, Birmingham; Sunday 21 April, The Lowry, Salford; Tuesday 23 April, The Arena, St Albans; Wednesday 24 April, The Pavilion, Bournemouth.

Joan Collins - One Night With Joan is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to spend an intimate evening in the company of a true English Hollywood legend. Joan Collins will take to the stage with honesty, style and grace and with the same engaging wit and frankness that turned her two memoirs, Past Imperfect and Second Act, into international best-sellers. Among the many confidences, she tells of the ups and downs of her career and screens rare and often hilarious film footage from her life. It’s a chance to hear first hand about her screen test for Cleopatra and why she lost the role to Elizabeth Taylor, her on-set
encounters with the formidable Bette Davis and many others including Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Paul Newman and Richard Burton; and, of course, her relationships! Another highlight of the evening are outtakes and her legendary bitch-fights with Linda Evans in Dynasty. The evening includes a question and answer session with the chance to ask Joan anything you’ve always wanted to know about her amazing life.

Joan Collins has appeared in more than 118 feature films and TV shows, including creating the role of Alexis Carrington on Dynasty, one of the most highly rated television dramas of all time. Her novels and memoirs have sold over 50 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 30 languages. She is a regular diarist for The Spectator and a contributor to The Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Times and Harper's Bazaar. On stage, Joan Collins has performed on Broadway, the West End, and in national tours in the UK and North America. She is recognised world-wide as a fashion maven of timeless beauty, and is a brand ambassador and spokeswoman for top cosmetic, health and beauty companies. On the humanitarian front, Joan Collins is devoted to the well-being of women, children and families and regularly lends her support and celebrity to causes that include finding a cure for breast cancer and empowering children with learning disabilities. She is also a committed patron of Shooting Star/Chase Hospice for Children. She is married to Theatrical Manager Percy Gibson, and they live between their homes in Los Angeles, London, New York and the South of France. In 1997 she received an OBE for her lifetime contribution to the arts and her continuing charity work.
