Comedienne Dawn French, of double act French & Saunders fame, is planning to return solo to the West End next year. She's tipped to present Geraldine Aron's new monologue My Brilliant Divorce in February 2003 in a production directed by Garry Hynes. French - or rather her Bottom - last appeared in the West End at the Albery Theatre in Matthew Francis's spring 2001 staging of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. On television, French's acting credits include The Vicar of Dibley, Murder Most Horrid and Let Them Eat Cake. French is married to fellow comedian Lenny Henry.
