A bin man swaps steel-toed boots for stilettos to chase his dream of becoming a drag queen. But can he overcome inflexible hamstrings, an anti-woke boyfriend and the cost-of-living crisis in his quest to be crowned Miss Stoke?
Following a sold-out run at the Camden Fringe, Offie-nominated ‘Wasteman’ is a raucous comedy with tons of heart about making something fabulous in the most un-fabulous of settings. This one-person show combines monologue, song and (of course) drag in a love letter to both hard-working Northerners and gender euphoria, based on writer Joe Leather’s real-life experiences working as a Refuse Loader through lockdown.
When life gives you garbage, make it gorgeous.
