More Than a Little Black Dress

Jo Denver's play about Coco Chanel - her life of style, sex and secrets, was premiered by The Players in May 2015, in six performances at the newly renovated Playhouse.

The play was directed by Jo, and produced by David Crewe.

The performances drew some wonderful responses, and the last weekend was entirely sold out, with quite a number of Maleny-ites missing out on a seat, whilst some elected to take a standing room option for the entire play!

The play was a full length play in two Acts.
