Bristol Shakespeare Festival Theatre Company introduces Drag King Richard III, a comedy which, between laughter, tears, tragedy and enlightenment, follows the transition of Laurie (played by Joey Hateley) from woman to man.
This play, which recently won the U Win Tin Award (Amnesty International) and which is directed by Roz Hopkinson, explores gender identity and the main character Laurie/Laurence's frustration of living in the wrong-sex body creating disturbing complications with her long-term friend La Femme, a butch lesbian who enjoys dressing in femme drag.
Drag King III will be played at the Arnolfini Centre for Contemporary Arts with post performance discussion on July 12 – 7.30, at the Bristol Fringe Café-Bar on July 16 & 17 – 7.30 and at the SouthBank Bristol, July 20 – 7.30.
