OVERVIEW

  • Synopsis

    In a dressing room an ageing drag queen reveals his life and loves, victories and defeats.

    Exploring the themes of identity, love found and love lost, and using the music of Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Billie Holiday and more, Language UnBecoming a Lady reveals the story of one gay man’s life. From his childhood through adolescence and onto adulthood, the one constant in his life is the music of the divas who provide comfort, strength and inspiration.
