ABOUT Songs For Nobodies

Five iconic singers; Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas encounter five ordinary women in the West End premiere of this critically acclaimed one-woman show.

Written especially to showcase the extraordinary talents of singer and actress, Bernadette Robinson, this genuinely funny and moving play by renowned playwright Joanna Murray–Smith (Honour) is directed by Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) and is accompanied by live musicians.

On stage for 90 minutes accompanied by live musicians and ‘performed with astounding versatility’ (★★★★ The Reviews Hub), Bernadette Robinson’s miraculous voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the thrilling soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf. With consummate ease, she breathes new life into the five legendary performers and the five ordinary women whose lives were changed by their brush with fame.

This ‘tour de force’ (★★★★★ Broadway World), performed by the uniquely talented Australian singer and actor in her critically-acclaimed one-woman performance of a lifetime, is ‘a fabulous story’ (★★★★ The Times).

Songs For Nobodies is booking from 9 January 2019 until 23 February 2019 at the Ambassadors Theatre, London.


Written by Joanna Murray–Smith and directed by Simon Phillips.
