Rula Lenska is to perform her one-woman show From Dzikow to Willesden Green in The Rotunda at the 2018 Buxton Festival Fringe.

She brings to life the memoirs of her mother Elizabeth “Bisia” Carroll in a “moving, funny and sometimes devastating story of a Countess who escaped Nazi-occupied Poland through Yugoslavia, survived a concentration camp and arrived in England as a refugee”.

Lenska is one of a number of performers appearing in the dome in the Pavilion Gardens. She will take to the stage on Sunday 15 July at 3:30PM.

Other shows in the Rotunda include the return of impressionist James Hurn in a new Hancock’s Half Hour, which features a rediscovered episode and two new ones written by Hurn, on Sunday 15 and Saturday 21 July, both at 5PM.

Ross Ericson, who won the best actor award in 2017, will present The Unknown Soldier on Sunday 8 July at 5PM and Sunday 15 July at 8PM.

Buxton Festival Fringe 2018 will run from 4 until 22 July.
