About Drag Queen Stole My Dress: "This one time I got a pre-emptive divorce. And this other time, a drag queen stole my dress. Let me tell about it: This is the story of knowing who are, forgetting who are, wondering who the hell you are, and yes that one time a drag queen stole my goddamn dress."
From the theatre company that brought you last year's award winning fringe hit, Love in the Time of Time Machines, (Official Hangover Selection & Audience Choice Award Winner, Frigid New York 2013; Best Visual Identity, Montreal Fringe 2013) comes a brand new solo show, Drag Queen Stole My Dress. This autobiographical tale from Toronto's Gillian English tells the story of love, loss, casino show girls, Australians and a solitary drag queen with kleptomania.
