Big Girl's Blouse

Who knew what being transgender was in the 1970s? Not Kate’s family. To be fair, crispy pancakes had only just landed in the Midlands so she had her work cut out. The path to becoming a woman doesn’t always run smooth and with a lifetime of coming out, Kate has had to use every trick — theatrical and otherwise — to get by. 

Big Girl’s Blouse sees Kate make a song and dance about her life using humour, music and costume to tell her story. Created in collaboration with Olivier Award-winning director Mark Whitelaw 

SHOUT Festival are delighted to present the award winning Big Girl’s Blouse as the closing performance of the 2016 Festival.
