Lady Christina leaves the stage at the end of another performance in another venue above another pub. She's tired of metro-sexual audiences looking for something a little risqué to tell their mothers about, she's tired of young drag queens making it look easy, and she's tired of putting on the make-up and becoming someone else every night. In short, Drag has become a drag, and tonight could be her last ever show. But when the make-up starts to come off, the face in the mirror takes Christopher Laneghan back to the life he lived before she came along. Can he live, if living is without her?
Step off the stage, leave the glamour and the costumes behind, and get to know the person behind the make-up

'Absolutely cracking. Wonderfully written. The performance is superb. Pathos and deep serious emotions, but there's a beautiful wit as well. Very entertaining.' Review by Alan Bissett (Scottish playwright, novelist, performer)
'Make-up has charm and wit and plenty of poignancy. This intimate play will resonate with audiences and is perfect for fringe festivals.' Review by Jayne Williams (Playwright , New Perspectives Theatre, UK)
'Expertly conceived, written and executed by a team who plainly have an eye for the socio-political zeitgeist.' (Review by Buxton Fringe Review of past production)
'If you are looking out for a play that has warmth, examines the human condition, in a well-defined, but unsentimental way, with some fine lines and performances from talented actors, then this could be the new play for you' (Review by Remote Goat of past production)
