“You don’t have to stay in the gutter just because you were born there…”
Born Edith Gassion in 1915, no one could have predicted Edith Piaf’s phenomenal rise to fame – from singing in the streets of Paris to becoming one of France’s biggest international stars, her voice is still revered to this day. But her extraordinary talent was matched with an equally extraordinary personal life…
Pam Gems’ sensational and emotionally-charged play explores the highs and lows of the enigmatic yet fragile singer’s life and features some of Piaf’s most famous songs, including La Vie en Rose, Hymne à l’amour and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien.
Piaf is directed by Adam Penford (An Enemy of the People, The Madness of George III, Wonderland) and stars Tony nominee Jenna Russell (Sunday in the Park with George, EastEnders) in the title role.
How It Works
At the time of booking, you’ll be sent an email with an e-ticket attached.
The e-ticket will contain two links to our website. The first link will first take you to a login screen, as access to the livestream will be tied to your Nottingham Playhouse account. Please enter the email and password you used at the point of booking.
Once logged in, the second link will take you to the page where the livestream will be hosted. If you are testing the link in advance (which we recommend you do to avoid delays on the day), you’ll see a message letting you know you’re in the right place.
On the day of the show, simply repeat the above process. Once you reach the event page, you’ll see a Zoom screen has appeared on the page as the event will be ran via Zoom. You don’t need a Zoom login, but if you’d like to create a free account you can do this here.
If you don’t receive your e-ticket straight away after purchasing, please check your spam/junk folders. You can find help and advice about our digital performances on our FAQs page.
We look forward to welcoming viewers from all over the world for this special livestream. Please be aware that the show will begin at 7.30pm BST, so those in another time zone are advised to check the start time carefully.
