Colour Me Cecily

By by Bea Lee Smith Presented by Fab Cabaret

Upper Hutt, 1984. Bust out your shoulder pads and join Cecily as she discovers her true self, through the wonderful world of fashion and style guide, Colour Me Beautiful.

Cecily has escaped to New Zealand from London, following her divorce. She befriends an eccentric group of women, intent on living life to the fullest, and finds fulfilment in ways she never expected. Cecily's journey takes some hilarious twists and turns as she navigates her way through the minefield that is 1980s Upper Hutt.

Rich with nostalgia and the joy of self-discovery, come let Cecily colour your world…

Colour Me Cecily is a gem to be treasured.
John Smythe, Theatreview, 2018.
