It was the best idea they’d ever had – three disabled drag queens – called ‘Heelz n Wheelz’ – it was sensational! But when the sparkles fade and tensions rise, a new way forward is needed. Join our stars backstage as they now tour the first ‘Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?’ to star an ‘actually disabled’ Blanche. It’s seen better days and so have they. What can possibly go wrong as they pull back the curtain on their lives?

The award-winning Birds of Paradise Theatre Company with Tron Theatre bring you a dazzling new production inspired by Noel Greig’s 2006 play. ‘Blanche & Butch’ tells the witty and poignant story of the lives, loves and losses of the three disabled men who used to be the sensational Heelz n Wheelz. There’s not much sensation now…

Starring Robert Softley Gale, Garry Robson and Kinny Gardner with live music performed by Amelia Cavallo. Directed and designed by Kenny Miller with original songs from Akintayo Akinbode, ‘Blanche & Butch’ promises to be a night of outrageous unPCness, high quality campness and deeply touching stories of three men who span the generations.

All performances integrate audio description, sign language and captioning. Interpreter – Amy Cheskin – is fully integrated within the production.
