Panti Bliss Returns to Dublin With IF THESE WIGS COULD TALK

The performance is on 14 May.

LORD OF THE DANCE Comes to Cork Opera House

This summer, Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss is hitting the road with her smash-hit comedy If These Wigs Could Talk. First up is Dublin's Vicar Street for the only Dublin outing of the show on 14 May.

Fresh from making history on RTE's Dancing with the Stars, If These Wigs Could Talk meets notorious drag queen Panti, age 54, after a lifetime of accidental activism, far-fetched shenanigans and making a full time show of herself, now taking a moment to question what her purpose and place in this changing world is.

Expect salacious stories, impassioned polemics, and some seriously funny soul searching as Panti takes us from rural Mayo to London's glittering West End to the Irish Ambassador's residence in Vienna, where the answer to her existential question presents itself where she least expects it.

Following a record-breaking sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre last November, Panti invites you to learn from her ridiculous mistakes, laugh at her glittering failures, and share in her triumphs, in this big, beautiful and brilliant night out.

Tickets are €40, on sale at 11am this Friday 10 March via Click Here
