Announcing Hackney Showroom's first in-house production by Peter Clements & Oliver Dawe.
The infamous, international shape-shifter Frau Welt tells her story for the first and last time in this genre-busting new play. In anticipation of her retirement, join the cult of Frau worshippers to experience the egomaniacal Midas touch of this grande dame of the theatre. From Weimar Berlin to Broadway stardom, her secret is finally exposed.
Unique in form, this one (wo)man play takes the traditions and tropes of drag cabaret into the heart of a narrative-led drama.
