The Ruby Slippers critically acclaimed LGBT show

Official Pride in London eventThe Ruby Slippers, the hit critically acclaimed hilarious and tender LGBTQ love story taking audiences by storm across the North of England. It is a story centered around a transgender character called Rachel.

A hilarious and tender love story between two flawed souls, Raz and Ryan surrounded by the drama, outrageous comedy and glamour of a Blackpool Drag bar on its last legs.

Raz, owner of The Ruby Slippers is drinking what little profit he has left, he loves his flatmate and bar man Ryan but can't bring himself to outright admit it.

Similarly Ryan is in love with Raz but he can't admit it until he tells him the truth, that he is not a gay man but rather a woman, Rachel.

The Ruby Slippers last remaining star Drag acts Phoenix and Destiny are too concerned with their RuPaul mega mix and executing the perfect Slutty Nun Fantasy on Friday nights show to help.

Will Raz become one of the bigots he has been fighting his whole life? Will The Ruby Slippers last long enough as rival drag club Nine Inches keeps stealing all their best Queens?

Can Raz and Rachel find true love?
