A former Coronation Street actress portrays more than 50 characters in a one-woman play at The Dukes on September 9.

Krissi Bohn, who played Jenna Kamara in the television soap, returns to The Bogus Woman seven years after it was seen by more than 3,500 people during a sell-out run in Keswick.

The Bogus Woman tells the experiences of a young African woman who arrives in England, fleeing for her life and seeking asylum.

In the space of 80 minutes Krissi Bohn transforms herself into soldiers, immigration officials, detention centre staff, fellow asylum seekers, do-gooders, lawyers and many others.

Krissi said: “Playing in The Bogus Woman was the most challenging and most rewarding piece of work I have done.”

There will be a post show talkback after the performance which is free to ticketholders.

Tickets are £13/£11(concessions). Balcony standing tickets are £5. To book, ring box office on 01524 598500 or visit www.dukes-lancaster.org.
