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.
