About the Show

Nancy, an oyster girl from Whitstable, is captivated by the music hall phenomenon Kitty Butler, a male impersonator extraordinaire.

Nan eagerly watches all her shows and finally gets to meet her heroine before becoming Kitty's dresser.

They soon head for the bright lights of Leicester Square where they Nan is drawn in to be part of an all singing and dancing double act. The simmering attraction between these two leading ladies reaches breaking point and their affair begins...
