Dressed as a Girl + Intro

The London East End drag performance phenomenon gets its moment in this fabulous behind-the-scenes account of six years in the lives of some of its most celebrated performers. See Jonny Woo, John Sizzle, Holestar, Scottee, Amber, Pia and Ma Butcher dazzle and surprise with their on-stage antics.

This documentary is both a record of a fascinating style of hyper-costumed performance and an insight into the fragile personal lives of these heroic public idols.
