Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
Following a hit international tour and Edinburgh stint, Panti is back in town.
The Queen of Ireland, PANTI, invites you into her gender-discombobulating, stiletto-shaped world, exposing the stories behind the make-up – from performance giant to accidental activist – to reveal the National F*cking Treasure she is today.
In 2014, Panti landed herself in a legal shitstorm, dubbed ‘Pantigate’. Her speech about homophobia went viral, was broadcast around the world, remixed by Pet Shop Boys, caused a parliamentary meltdown, and fed into Ireland’s marriage equality referendum success.
Hilarious and poignant, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against traditions; to towering plastique woman in false lashes making history.
‘Leaves lipstick traces on both heart and mind.’
‘A wise, hilarious, foul-mouthed jolt to the system.’
‘Exquisitely tart-tongued comedy… electrically revealing and masterful.’
