At its heart, there’s a sickening crime story from Glasgow’s gay underworld. But it’s just part of Russell Barr’s funny, touching show about a young man blowing up pigeons, shoplifting, and making an unlikely identity for himself:

Drag Queen Bernice Hindley – “Myra’s niece” – pulls you into a secret city. Meet her fucked-up friends and family: Violent trannies, self-combusting grannies, Jack Russells driving cars…

Associate Director: Naomi Jones Stage Manager: Chris Hay

Written and performed by Russell Barr

‘riotously funny… an observant writer and a compelling performer’ Daily Telegraph

‘macabre, yet also very funny, blending bitchy banter, acute observation and touches of the surreal… and as sour-sweet as sherbet lemons.’ The Times

‘a rich stew of a show that has the steamy stench of a dark Jacobean comedy… hilarious, excoriating and intensely moving’ The Guardian

‘an astonishingly well-judged performance… sometimes shocking, sometimes funny, and always delivered with compelling vividness’ Time Out

‘sad, grotesque and beautiful… camp and earthy, self-mocking, surreal… and then cutting across our laughter with a series of lurching silences that gradually lead down into real horror’ The Scotsman

‘vivid and compelling’ Independent

‘powerful, tragic and funny… Blackly comic and touching, a totally captivating hour of theatre that will stay with you long after the applause is done’ Scotsgay
