Christine Bovill’s Piaf, as much a play as it is a musical homage, is a moving tribute to one of France’s most endearing icons; celebrating some of her best known songs, threaded with Piaf’s story, and Christine’s own remarkable journey in the world of chanson. An award-winning songwriter in her own right, Bovill has toured Europe and the Far East with her self-penned homage to the Little Sparrow, appearing on BBC Newsnight and on BBC Radio 4’s series, Soul Music as well as the Edinburgh Fringe sell out show.
