LONDON — Dame Edna Everage, self-styled Housewife Superstar a.k.a. Barry Humphries, will return to the West End at Christmas 2013 as the finale to her farewell U.K. tour “Eat, Pray, Laugh!”

Produced by Paul Dainty of The Dainty Group and James Cundall of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, the show presents Humphries’ further alter-egos The Honorable Sir Les Patterson and Sandy Stone with the second act devoted to Dame Edna.

“Eat, Pray, Laugh!,” which has already toured Australia, is helmed by Simon Phillips, director of the original “Priscilla Queen of the Desert,” and is designed by Brian Thomson. Opening at the Milton Keynes Theater on Oct. 23, 2013, “Eat, Pray, Laugh!” will then play Cardiff and Edinburgh before transferring to the West End at a theater yet to be announced.
