Vesta Tilley and Hetty King were international superstars who wowed audiences around the globe with their male impersonator acts over 100 years ago. In this show, Vesta and Hetty are brought to life again to tell their stories and to determine once and for all, which of them was Queen of the original Drag Kings.
The show will include a number of classic music hall songs sung by Vesta and Hetty, including Following in Father's Footsteps, Burlington Bertie from Bow, peppered with banter between the two stars and the audience. At the end of the show, the audience will decide which woman wins the title of the best male impersonator in the world. If you love old time music hall, or you’re partial to a bit of 'drag' then this will be right up your alley!
This is the latest production from Lemon Squeeze, who brought the ★★★★ sell-out show CRUNCH! to Brighton Fringe in 2022, and the multiple ★★★★★ show Three Women and Shakespeare''s Will to Edinburgh Fringe in the same year.
