A masterclass with the self-proclaimed Queen of the Fringe.

After 30 years working on, in, under and around the British Fringe Theatre Circuit, Gillian Beak bares all in public to share a lifetime of theatrical windfalls with whoever might care to munch on them; finally Beak Speaks.

By kind permission of Sarah Thom.

“If I was 10 years younger Gillian Beak would already be my ex-wife”  Miles Jupp
