Award-winning character comedian, actor and writer Colin Hoult brings his eccentric, witty, and wonderful alter-ego back into the theatres! Colin Hoult’s Anna Mann; actress, singer, welder (gotta have a backup) and siren of the stage and screen will be taking her brand-new show, The Death of Anna Mann, on tour around the UK from August 2022.
After five incredibly long years, Anna Mann returns to enchant us with the tales, tribulations, and epic saga of her fabulous life in the arts, as she faces… her final moments. As the title suggests, this will quite literally be Colin’s final Anna Mann show as he puts this character to rest. “Don’t you dare cry!” – Anna Mann.
Anna Mann is the much beloved and beautifully absurd creation of one of the greatest British comedians, Colin Hoult, whose work is wonderfully crafted, satirical, and refreshing. Colin says “Anna has always been a vehicle for me to explore things affecting me in real life, from my experiences with depression, to the rise of modern-day fascism [Colin & Anna’s 2018 show ‘How We Stop The Fascists’] to grief, which is a prominent theme throughout this final Anna Mann show. My own personal experiences of grief, and how we learn to deal with it, have hugely influenced the story, themes, and comedy of this new show”
Hoult presents a hilarious meditation on life, death and literally everything in between, as Anna would describe it “it will be visceral, real, and achingly brave”. You will leave screaming “f*** off I love it!”.
