Half a century after the legalization of homosexuality, ‘The gifted singer Jessica Walker’ (NY TIMES) and MD Joseph Atkins present a provocative cabaret about illicit same-sex desire in times of repression.

Beginning with the male impersonators of the Victorian music hall and the first openly gay songs of the Weimar Cabaret in 1920s Berlin, we journey through the erotic songs of 1930s Paris, and into the hidden sexualities of artists in Britain and America, right up to the introduction of the infamous clause 28 in the 1980s.

From Noel Coward to Dusty Springfield via Marlene Dietrich, this is an evening of queer history in song not to be missed.
