The Queen of Spleen reigns supreme! Decades of excessive spending and snorting may finally be catching up with outspoken journalist Julie Burchill, but who is there left to upset? With bills mounting up and the phone not ringing, Julie must decide whether to chance what’s left of her career on a spin of the celebrity wheel…

Lizzie Roper plays Sam Lomax / DI Lacey in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks. Theatre credits include One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest with Christian Slater and The Odd Couple with Alan Davies and Bill Bailey.  Her last Edinburgh solo show, Peccadillo Circus, transferred to the West End.

Writer Tim Fountain’s plays include Sex Addict (Royal Court), Resident Alien (Bush and NY Theatre Workshop), Julie Burchill Is Away and How To Lose Friends and Alienate People (Soho). He was a principal writer on Bob and Margaret (C4/Comedy Central).

Director Mike Bradwell founded Hull Truck Theatre Company, was Artistic Director of the Bush Theatre, and continues to work widely as a freelance director.
