D’yan Forest: Swinging on the Seine
Comedienne and cabaret artist D'yan Forest (currently Guinness World Records Title Holder for Oldest Female Comedian in the World) has always been ahead of her time. In 1963 she moved to Paris as a young, innocent, recently divorced Bostonian looking to make it big in the Parisian cabaret scene. Immersing herself in the glitz, glamour, and scandalous nightlife of the era, the naive D’yan was transported from a sheltered suburban existence to a life filled with underground sex clubs and the swinger’s scene. A coming of age story like you have never seen it. The audacious D’yan officially turns 88 in the middle of the show and she's still going strong. Come celebrate life, love, and the city of Paris with her!
"A delightful romp. Forest is a bit of scamp and her tales of naughty mischief are both entertaining and inspiring...she's a complete and total hoot." - Theatre Is Easy, Best Bet
Swinging on the Seine was written by D’yan Forest and Stephen Clarke (bestselling author of “A Year in the Merde”). D’yan Forest has performed all over the world with notable performances in New York, Paris, Edinburgh and even Ethiopia. If there’s a stage, chances are she’s been on it.
