The infamous international shapeshifter Frau Welt tells her story for the first and last time in this genre-busting new play by Peter Clements and Oliver Dawe. From Weimar Berlin to Broadway stardom, her secret is finally exposed. Frau Welt is a play about the outsider and the consequences of a life excluded, examining the masks we wear in our search for acceptance and belonging. Unique in form, this one-(wo)man play places the traditions and tropes of drag cabaret straight into the heart of a narrative-led drama. 'Darkly funny and touchingly sympathetic… unique!' ***** (QX Magazine).
