Shane idolises Lady Macbeth.

He always has done, ever since she slipped into his world through Grandma's telly when he was small.

Tonight, Shane's been stood up. Lonely and lost, he turns to Shakespeare's fierce queen for strength.

But how far can becoming your idol help you find yourself when you're anxious and alone?

Queer Lady M brings together devised performance, Shakespeare and drag while exploring the real-life experiences of working-class, gender-fluid artist Shane Gabriel. 

After a successful R&D phase last year, 1623 is making and scratching Queer Lady M this year, before touring the show in 2019. 

So far, we've shared an early version of Queer Lady M at In Good Company's Scratch That Itch at Derby Theatreand The Party Somewhere Else's Scratch Night at Nottingham Playhouse.
