We’re counting down to the world premiere of Call Me Vicky, sisters Nicola and Stacey Bland’s debut play which charts the true life story of a transwoman’s challenges in 1980s London. Sneak a peek inside rehearsals, with Wendi Peters playing mum – and then get booking!
Call Me Vicky receives its world premiere at London’s Pleasance Theatre, running from 19 February to 9 March 2019, with a press night on 21 February and a post-show Q&A chaired by MyTheatreMates co-founder Terri Paddock on Sunday 24 February. Written by sisters Nicola and Stacey Bland, who also feature in the cast alongside Wendi Peters, Call Me Vicky is a debut play based entirely on a true story.
It’s 1980 in Elephant and Castle. Martin and best friend Debbie are getting ready for another night out at Martin’s favourite night spot, The Golden Girl, one of Soho’s premier drag clubs. However, tonight is not a regular night out. Tonight is the night that will change Martin’s life forever.
Will the love of Vicky’s friends, family and drag queens be enough to get her through the toughest of times? Call Me Vicky charts Vicky’s journey to become the person she knows herself to truly be.
Call Me Vicky runs from 19 February to 9 March 2019 at the Pleasance Theatre, Carpenters Mews, North Road, London N7 9EF. Performances run Tuesdays to Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 6pm. Tickets are priced £16 (previews £12). CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
