Édith Piaf was a force of nature. Her numerous lovers, all of whom sooner or later fell from grace and were quickly replaced by a successor, could tell you a thing or two about it. Édith was free and dangerous, had seen and done everything, and that could be seen and heard.
In 1978 Pam Gems wrote the biographical musical Piaf for the Royal Shakespeare Company, which quickly conquered stages all over the world. In bursting scenes, she suddenly illuminates stations from Édith Piaf's fascinating life. The play is peppered with Édith Piaf's great chansons such as "L'accordéoniste", "Padam", "La vie en rose", "Mon dieu", "Milord" and "Non, je ne regrette rien". A parade role for audience favourite Daniela Dett.
