The excellent ‘play’ by Panti has been given a makeover for a bigger audience.

thisispopbaby’s delightful queering of the national theatre continues, with a rejigged and rejuvenated one-woman autobiographical show All Dolled Up: Restitched, starring the Dublin-based drag artist Panti.

Anyone who has seen Panti’s previous shows – In These Shoes?, All Dolled Up or A Woman In Progress – knows the universal appeal of Panti’s story, even if the journey of a young boy in small town Mayo transforming into a gay icon isn’t your average “finding yourself” trajectory. But Panti is a fantastic raconteur, as frequent attendees of Saturday nights at Pantibar will attest. The show runs from July 9th on the Peacock stage.
