Grassington - Octagon Theatre, 48 Main St, Grassington, Skipton BD23 5AZ, UK

Dusty Springfield was without doubt the finest white soul singer of her era – for millions she was the definitive pop diva. Her lifestyle was the stuff of legend – and great drama. With her relentless quest for perfection and refusal to compromise, Dusty Springfield led a tortured life.

Her stage persona – extravagant black mascara and black combed hair – was at odds with the quiet, shy convent girl, Mary O’Brien and her sexuality. The result was a downward spiral of drugs, alcohol-abuse and self-harm but despite all of that she produced tremendous music, which still ranks as some of the finest of its kind.
