Caroline O’Connor plays six very different female characters who all in the depths of a crisis. The women in question include a harassed housewife, an increasingly disillusioned bride on her wedding day, an ageing American cabaret singer who’s had her fair share of personal problems and an Irish schoolgirl dancing to Shaft at a local talent show.
Caroline O’Connor has performed in many West End shows, including lead roles in Mack & Mabel at the Piccadilly Theatre in 1995 which earned her a nomination for an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical, and Romance Romance at the Gielgud in 1997. She was born in England but was subsequently raised and trained in Australia, and was interested in performing from an early age, becoming the South Australian Irish Dancing Champion at the age of six. She made her Broadway debut as Velma Kelly in the musical Chicago in 2002.
