Presented by Critical Mass. Written and directed by Sarah Chew

So, I live with this geeky, kind of brilliant boy.  

Every night, the clock chimes midnight, and this boy turns into the most beautiful woman in  all the world.  

It’s gorgeous.  

Just, it’s a fairytale.  

And that makes me scared that it’s bollocks.  

London, Summer 2010. Orla and Mark cordially invite you to the grand opening of their fabulous new drag bar.  

There’s one problem. Orla has just returned from witnessing a failed revolution. By accident.  

Part theatre, part drag cabaret, Lipstick: A Fairy Tale of Iran is a story of rage, redemption and  weaponised  whimsy, which straddles Tehran, Derry and London.

Lipstick stars the award-winning actor Siobhan O’Kelly (Jack Taylor, Klondike) as Orla and celebrated drag legend Nathan Kiley/Topsie Redfern (Mary Sunshine in Chicago; Rubbed) as Mark.
