Me To Love
28th - Friday 30th November 2018
Its golden stilettos, ripped fishnets, shoulder pads, and
neon bobs. It’s Doncaster, 2009. Autobiographical, drag & storytelling.
So imagine this. You are 14 years old and you are a drag
queen. Its golden stilettos, ripped fishnets, shoulder pads, and neon bobs.
It’s expression. It’s glamour. It’s power. It’s Doncaster, 2009.
This autobiographical, three person show, combines drag
performance with theatrical storytelling to build the world of Bonnie Love and
The Bonnettes. Set against a backdrop of pop anthems and glitter we follow
Cameron as he throws himself into a pair of 6-inch stilettos – meeting new
people making both friends and foes. But not everything is as it seems and
piece by piece the glamorous world of drag fades away.
It’s about being young, having that fire in your belly and
seeing no limitations or rules. It’s the uncertainty of your own identity and
the creation of a new one. It’s about finding a safe place between the two.
Between boy and drag. It’s a reflection. An exorcism. A scrapbook.
