Topsie Redfern: Crystal Balls (15+)

Friday, September 17
Drag queen and party princess Topsie Redfern is getting back to her roots. Her musical roots, her grey roots, and her family roots; especially her Great Grandmother Winifred, who ran away from her own wealthy roots with an Irish Traveller, eventually becoming renowned fairground fortune teller Madam Olga.
Topsie teams up with her own alter ego, Nathan Kiley, to explore their shared roots, and their shared route from West End star to drag artist, to both, to… who knows what next…? Topsie invites you to join her on a journey of queer self-acceptance, to stare into her Crystal Balls and muse on what has been, and wonder at what is to come.
Not your conventional drag cabaret, the show covers themes including Gypsy Roma Traveller (GRT) rights, Section 28, and the downfall and re-elevation of Enigma codebreaker and father of Artificial Intelligence Alan Turing – but rest assured, there’s also plenty of filthy jokes, stunning vocals, and glitter!
