Directed by Polly Stenham
The play that scandalised 1920s New York follows respected, married socialite Rolly. Son of a homophobic judge and married to the daughter of an eminent gay conversion therapist, Rolly is keen to keep his homosexual tendencies under wraps. However, when he decides to host a drag ball in his drawing room, events soon spiral out of control.
One of the first plays to shed light on gay counter-culture, Mae West’s rarely performed comedy was banned after ten performances.
