It’s the comeback equivalent of the Spice Girls at the Olympics, Cher doing Believe, or Kathy Beale climbing out of a taxi: Bradley is returning to drag for the first time in a decade. But when he learns that an unwelcome blast from the past is in the audience, he must decide if he’s truly ready…
A funny, warm-hearted, extremely queer play about moving on from trauma, the power of community, and the restorative force of a Britney Spears banger.
