The Queen of Ireland, drag artist Panti Bliss, invites you into her gender-discombobulating, stiletto-shaped world, exposing the stories behind the make-up – from performance giant to accidental activist – to reveal the National F*cking Treasure she is today.
In 2014, Panti landed herself in a legal sh*t storm, dubbed ‘Pantigate’. Her subsequent speech from the stage of The Abbey Theatre about homophobia went viral, was broadcast around the world, remixed by Pet Shop Boys, caused a parliamentary meltdown, was the basis for the acclaimed Queen of Ireland documentary, and fed into Ireland’s marriage equality referendum success.
Hilarious and poignant, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against traditions; to towering plastique woman in false lashes making history.
High Heels in Low Places has played to packed houses and glittering reviews in London, Dublin, New York, Paris, Edinburgh and Australia.
