After a lifetime of accidental activism, far-fetched shenanigans and making a full time show of herself, notorious drag queen Panti Bliss—the “Queen of Ireland”—is now taking a moment to question her purpose and place in this changing world. 

Expect salacious stories, impassioned polemics, and some seriously funny soul searching as Panti takes us from rural Mayo to London’s West End, where along the way the answer to her question presents itself where she least expects it. 


Bring your friends, family, and colleagues for a night of theatre and hospitality at Irish Arts Center. Learn more about our group packages here.

Presented with generous support from Culture Ireland.
