There is only ONE Doris Day…
…but there are millions of Doris Day fans: I would very much consider myself the latter of the two. A Date with Doris is not a tribute act but is a one-woman play which portrays the music, the movies and persona of Doris, all through the eyes and experience of a very big fan. My character in “A Date with Doris” is very possibly the antithesis of Hollywood’s biggest female star and more the real-life girl-next-door who lives alone, sings and talks to her Doris Day picture and is visited by a comical over-bearing Mammy!
A Mothers Help
As we prepare for the mystery man to sweep me off my feet, I pass the time, with a beautifying regime, drinking cheap white wine and most importantly singing through my classic Doris Day record collection, which is the only thing that can put me at my ease.
My mother turns up unexpectantly, as she is prone to do! She tells me everything I am doing wrong and departs having generously helping me finish my bottle of wine.
