Love is a Drag at Ruby Slippers

BE amongst the 1st audiences to see the debut production from new theatre company Break a Leg Productions. The Ruby Slippers is a play all about love and friendships, full of comedy and drama, taking theatregoers on a real rollercoaster of emotions.

The show is being piloted at:- The Lantern Theatre, Liverpool, on Saturday, 20 February 2016, with 2 performances, only at 5pm and 8pm, before moving on to further venues in the region. All tickets are £10.50 and are on sale now.

Raz is on top of the world. Owner of drag club, The Ruby Slippers, he has met Ryan, who he believes is the man of his dreams. However, all is not as it seems. A rival club has opened and Ryan has a secret that will change everything.

This exciting new 2 act play comes from Break a Leg Productions' writers Emma Culshaw and David Paul, and directed by Jackie Downey. It explores love, identity, friendship and prejudice within the LGBT community.

Business is poor at The Ruby Slippers. The club is losing money to a rival drag club in Town called:- 'Nine Inches', which is not only stealing Raz's punters, but also his star acts, Drag Queens Phoenix and Destiny. Raz is hopelessly in love with his flat mate and barman, Ryan. The feeling is mutual. However Ryan has a secret, only known by his mother Helen, who support her son's decision and encourages him to tell Raz the whole truth.

So put on your high heels and hold on tight for a riotous, glamourous, comical, yet emotional evening in The Ruby Slippers nightclub where the truth is about to be revealed.

Writers Emma Culshaw and David Paul commented:- "When creating The Ruby Slippers our main aim was to write an honest story that showed the highs and lows of being in love when there are difficult obstacles to cross. We have a brilliant, talented cast and rehearsals are going well. And we cannot wait to premiere the play at The Lantern Theatre in Liverpool next February, the play also tackles transgender issues and is fitting that we launch the play as we approach Transgender Day of Remembrance on 20 November 2015. We hope audiences love what we have set out to do, by creating a play full of compassion, humour and outrageous one-liners but with a strong underlying message."

The talented cast is led by James Rogerson as Raz and Jamie Christopherson as Ryan, they are joined by Debra Redcliffe (Helen), Emma Vaudrey (Laura), Owen Richard Farrow (Destiny), and Jordan Simms (Phoenix).

So if you want to see this Break a Leg Productions premiere LGBT play at Liverpool's Lantern Theatre, make note that you can only see it on Saturday, 20 February 2016. The Lantern Theatre, is located on Blundell Street, Liverpool, and the show will be preformed at 5pm and at 8pm. Tickets will be sold for £10.50 each, from the Theatre Box Office. Call:- 0151 703 0000 to book your ticket or visit:- LanternTheatreLiverpool.Co.UK to book and also for more information about this show and other shows at the Theatre.
