“What’s the odds so long as you’re happy?” — Ernest Boulton, 1869

Alone on the darkened stage of an old music hall, a man reflects on an extraordinary life as he awaits a very ordinary death.

Inspired by the scandalous true story of Ernest Boulton – the infamous Victorian cross-dresser – this original production from one of Britain’s most individual theatre-makers is a highly personal meditation on the fine art of living dangerously.
