Becoming Hattie, Leicester Square Theatre - Review

Blessed with a female writer, director and performer (Mhairi Grealis, Mary Swan and Ashley Christmas respectively), Becoming Hattie has its finger on the pulse of how women feel about their body image. In this one-woman show, parallels are drawn between the two women that Christmas plays: Hattie Jacques – a famous comedic actor from the 1950-80s who she greatly admires, and 'Jo' – a struggling actress who only gets cast for small parts such as cleaners and other members of society's underclass.
