The award-winning writer and comedian Sandra Meunier will open her new solo show ARENAS at the Lord Stanley as a part of the ‘Solo Festival’ in July.

Sandra Meunier is a celebrated burlesque comedian, as well as an award-winning and published writer. She studied performance writing with the Method Studio/Lee Strasberg London, Birkbeck and City Lit. She had the idea for the play after having seen striking resemblances between the life of a bullfighter and the female comedians and the burlesque dancers she works with. She is currently touring Britain with her well-loved sweet character BonBon LeBum.
