Fanny Brice begins with her irrepressible youth in New York’s Lower East Side, where she clowns her way through vaudeville, with dreams of making it big despite the discouragement of her friends and neighbors, who tell her that she isn’t pretty enough for the stage.
After meeting Nick Arnstein, a handsome and charismatic gambling man with a gentle side, Fanny immediately falls in love. And with her big break in the Ziegfeld Follies on the horizon, the stardom she has always longed for is within her grasp.
When Nick wins a bankroll, the newly-wealthy couple happily marry. But Fanny has to choose between the show business career she loves, or the adored husband who increasingly resents her success.

The Barn Theatre, Cirencester
Theatre Ink and COS Productions have come together to perform shows at the Barn Theatre. The groups have been performing side by side for 8 years, constantly evolving and growing closer, and now, within our ‘memberships’, there are many who are involved with both. The next natural step is to bring this relationship even closer by forming one theatre group.
Theatre Ink has grown into one of the top amateur groups in the area, celebrating 10 successful years, and expands its reach in to Swindon. COS is a long established award-winning group, with a 68 year history, embedded in the Cirencester town. Both groups share audiences and cast members.
It is important to us that we keep our members and supporters with us. We want to ensure we continue to appeal to those who support Theatre Ink and those who support COS Productions, as one group we will continue to perform at The Barn Theatre giving our shared audience the opportunity to attend top quality shows that we promise to continue to pour our hearts and passion in to producing.
