Win tickets to Casa Valentina

written by Harvey Fierstein

 Southwark Playhouse

10 September  - 10 October 

Nominated for 4 Tony Awards: Including Best New Play. .

Back in 1962, most men went to the Catskill Mountains of New York to escape the summer heat, but others took the two-hour drive to escape something else entirely: being men. Nestled in the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy sat an inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientèle: heterosexual men whose favourite pastime was dressing and acting as women. In this cross dressing colony, they leave their families, friends and city jobs behind to safely inhabit their female alter egos and release their inner woman. However, when given the choice to share their secret lives with the world, the group has to decide whether the freedom gained by the openness is worth the personal risk. Based on actual events and infused with Fierstein’s trademark wit, this delightfully insightful and hilariously entertaining piece offers a glimpse into the life of these “self-made women” as they search for acceptance and happiness in a high heel.

Back in 1962, most men went to the Catskill Mountains to escape the summer heat, but others took the two-hour drive to escape something else entirely: being men. Nestled in the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy sat an inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men whose favorite pastime was dressing and acting as women. It was paradise for these men—white-collar professionals with families—to spend their weekends discreetly and safely inhabiting their chosen female alter egos. But when they got the opportunity to share their secret lives with the world, these “self-made women” had to decide whether the freedom they would gain by emerging from hiding was worth the risk of personal ruin.

Infused with Fierstein’s trademark wit, this moving, insightful and delightfully entertaining new work offers a glimpse into the lives of a group of unforgettable characters as they search for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden.
