WHAT’S ON AUTUMN: Birds of Paradise Theatre Company’s Blanche and Butch tours Scotland

The award-winning Birds of Paradise Theatre Company bring you a dazzling new production featuring new music and high camp.

Blanche & Butch are backstage in a mist of hairspray and sequins as they reminisce about life as a troupe of disabled drag queens. Butch sings touching ballads – he’s all about regrets and reflection. Blanche, all camp and pop songs, lip-syncs – well, tries to – his “unique speech pattern” means nothing ever syncs.  And who’s the other guy?​

Inspired by Noel Greig’s 2006 play “Heelz On Wheels” and supported by the Tron Theatre, Blanche & Butch tells the witty and poignant story of the lives, loves and losses of the three disabled men who used to be the sensational ‘Heelz n Wheelz’. There’s not much sensation now…
