Act One of EAT, PRAY, LAUGH! features gentle, grandfatherly Sandy Stone, perhaps Humphries' greatest creation, and the outrageous Les Patterson - according to Dame Edna "this is just a bit of foreplay really before I make an orgasmic appearance in Act Two!"
Surrounded by spectacular sets and gorgeous and talented dancers, Dame Edna promises to 'empower' her audiences with what she describes as 'a meditation on loss, gender, climate change, gay marriage and ethnicity'.
