A Red-Hot London Date Set for THE RUBY SLIPPERS
Slap on some lipstick, put on those high heels and get ready for a riotous rollercoaster of emotions at one of the two performances on the day, taking place at 4pm and 7.30pm.
Raz is on top of the world. He's the owner of his own paradise drag club in Blackpool, The Ruby Slippers, and has met Ryan, the man of his dreams. However, all is not as it seems. Business is poor, while a rival club - Nine Inches - has opened which threatens to not only steal Raz's customers but also his star acts, Drag Queens Phoenix and Destiny. And then there is the secret Ryan hides that will change everything.
Are his business and relationship doomed? Or will the power of love win the day?
The comedy drama, created by Break A Leg Productions in association with Bill Elms (Epstein - The Man Who Made The Beatles, Twopence to Cross the Mersey), comes from the pen of writers Emma Culshaw and David Paul and is directed by Craig Ryder, who also stars as Destiny.
The talented cast also includes James Rogerson as Raz, Jamie Paul as Ryan, Debra Redcliffe (Helen), Emma Vaudrey (Laura), and Jordan Simms (Phoenix).
Writers Emma Culshaw and David Paul said: "The play tackles transgender issues and we hope audiences enjoy what we set out to achieve, creating a play full of compassion, humour and outrageous one-liners but with a strong underlying message."
Co-producer Bill Elms added: "The Ruby Slippers has a great script, great comedy and most of all a great storyline."
"I've been delighted to watch its growth, and now it's getting the London debut it deserves - and in one of the most exciting spaces in the West End too. London audiences are in for a treat."
