Queer Lady M

by 1623 theatre company

theatre

A fierce drag queen and her anxious alter-ego join forces to fight tragedy and celebrate queerness.

about the production

It's time for Queer Lady M's cabaret! Performed by gender-fluid artist Shane Gabriel, Lady Macbeth comes to life like never experienced before. There's outrageous lip-syncing, cheeky dancing and sassy conversation as Queer Lady M invites you to enter her world of passion and shade. But what happens when the show is over, when Shane removes the makeup and puts Lady M to bed? What stories will come to light as Shane invites us into his twilight world? A fierce drag queen and her anxious alter-ego join forces to fight tragedy and celebrate queerness.

about the artist

Since we began in 2005, we’ve developed a bold and ambitious vision: to give voices to marginalised people in response to Shakespeare and the world today. Our mission is to make great theatre, support artists, inspire learners, engage communities and champion diversity.
