QUEER LADY M

#1623performance 

New show currently in development 

"Look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under it"
: Lady Macbeth


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 drag, devised performance and Shakespeare to explore the real-life experiences of queer working-class artist Shane Gabriel. 

After a successful R&D phase last year, 1623 is planning to make and scratch Queer Lady M this year and tour the show in 2019.
