Paddy Glynn Paddy spent her early years in Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, moving to England to train as a dancer. She began her career at the London Palladium, then after stints in Las Vegas and Disneyland decided “enough with the feathers and sequins!” and turned to acting, travelling and working in London, Paris, America and New Zealand. Early this year, Paddy was Irish as Mrs. O'Connor in Holby City and French as Queen Margaret in Richard III. Now Russian! Before Sofka, her one-woman appearances were as Emma, Lady Hamilton and Mary Kingdom Brunel, but this is a first with cooking.
Russian Princess, wife, mother, inmate, friend, secretary for Laurence Olivier and eventually a Communist, Sofka’s journey through life was both fascinating and highly eventful. The Calder Bookshop welcomes you to an evening of theatre, storytelling and beetroot soup. Bon Appetite!
