“It will be raw and unvarnished. And tragic. But with laughter and gaiety. There will be love and romance. And drama. And medical examinations. And a painful death.”

Roll up, roll up for a riotous show about two young friends who to dared to be themselves – whatever the cost. Victorians Ernest Boulton and Frederick Park were known and adored as Fanny and Stella. They dazzled in female roles on our nation’s stages, and in clubs and bedrooms from London to the Highlands. Tonight – for one night only! – they present the shocking story of their own rise to fame and fall from grace, via a scandalous trial.
