It’s 1997 and Steven McPhail is bored. Millport was alright – but he’s 17 now and it’s time to work out what to do with his life, but there’s only so much one can do when you’re stuck on a Scottish island. Everything changes when a chance encounter with an outrageous drag queen shows Steven a world he never knew existed.
By the same team that brought you Spuds, this is a one-man musical about coming of age, coming out and discovering who you really are.
