Geraldine is a lonely young secretary living with her invalid and overbearing mother. Her only respite is a hit American television show loosely based on the life of Zenobia, a third-century Syrian Queen. Using her life savings, Geraldine attends the first International Zenobia fan event. We cheer her on through the highs, the lows, the embarrassments and her small triumphs during her weekend adventures and we learn the secret behind her obsession with Zenobia. This one-woman comic drama by Eddie Coleman, and starring the wonderfully talented Karen Whyte, follows a sell-out run at the 2017 Camden Fringe Festival.
