Fanny & Stella continues to delight at Above The Stag

Fanny & Stella: The Shocking True Story

a play with songs by Glenn Chandler
music by Charles Miller
directed by Steven Dexter

8 May – 2 June

“It will be raw and unvarnished. And tragic. But with laughter and gaiety. There will be love and romance. And drama. And medical examinations. And a painful death.”

Victorians Ernest Boulton and Frederick Park were known and adored as Fanny and Stella. They dazzled in female roles on our nation’s stages – and in clubs and bedrooms from London to the Highlands. Tonight – for one night only! – they present the shocking story of their own rise to fame and fall from grace, via a scandalous trial.

Roll up, roll up for a riotous show about two young friends who to dared to be themselves – whatever the cost.

“Witty, fast paced and totally enjoyable with some great songs and strong heartfelt performances”

“A fantastic romp”
The Spy In The Stalls

“A uniformly outstanding cast… Enjoyable and thought provoking”
Theatre News

“Fanny and Stella emerge as heroes fighting to preserve their queer identity… Packed with camp humour and rude jokes… A joyous celebration.”
