Fresh from sell-out UK and Edinburgh Fringe runs, Kit Sinclair's 'life-altering' (Guardian) and 'joyous' (Independent) debut lands at Soho.
‘A knockout representation for lesbians, extending elegantly to their trans siblings and the queer community’
★★★★★ Lost In Theatreland

“Mum, forgot to tell you – I’m a lesbian. Sorry it’s late – fifteen years late, but grab a rainbow flag and don some Docs… I’m 30 and I’m coming out.”

On her 30th birthday, Kit left her twenties, her boyfriend and the closet. While her friends marry, have babies and get mortgages, she is starting from scratch in a whirlwind of drugs, clubs and heartbreak.

Join Kit in this hilarious, sexy and painful portrayal of what it means to start life all over again. Is it too late to be a lesbian? Does she need a cat and an undercut? Will coming out complete her?

Using touching interviews, innovative projection and powerful storytelling, Sinclair takes us on a memorable journey about drawing your own blueprint, discovering identity and losing yourself along the way.

Having collected sixteen 4-5 star reviews and five award nominations, this ‘electric’ (Voice Mag) autobiographical show weaves verbatim interviews from lesbians across the UK, representing so much more than just one journey. It’s a coming out story… Decades late to the party.

Part of Soho Rising Festival 2024, a celebration of new work created by comedians, writers and performers who have taken part in our Writers’ Lab, Comedy Lab or Cabaret & Drag Lab programmes.
