Description

Drag sensation Glamrou battles to merge their queer identity and Islamic heritage. In this blisteringly funny and political debut, Glamrou serenades their lover, Allah, with love songs, break-up songs and minaret-sized wigs. 'Glamrou's camp theatrics come with a political edge. It's striking how transgressive it feels **** (Guardian). 'Glamrou is full of heart and soul' ***** (Scotsman). 'Glamrou, the alpha of the group, offers a very provocative take on a Muslim upbringing that's virtually flirting with a fatwa' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Unapologetically queer and almost insultingly imaginative, Glamrou is a formidable intellectual powerhouse' (QX).
