Drag Queen Stole My Dress - Bondi Festival arrow-leftarrow-rightmagnifying-glassshare-iconshopping-cart-iconstar-iconuser-icon

Covering the past decade of her life, this autobiographical tale from Gillian English tells the story of love, loss, casino showgirls, Australians and a solitary drag queen with kleptomania.

“This one time I got a pre-emptive divorce. And this other time, a drag queen stole my dress,” says English. “Let me tell you about it: This is the story of knowing who you are, forgetting who you are, wondering who the hell you are, and yes, that one time a drag queen stole my goddamn dress.”

The show has been playing to sold out houses, and delighting audiences all over the world. Some stories are universally relatable, no matter where you come from.
