Drag queen and party princess Topsie Redfern has been thinking about getting back to her roots. – her musical roots, her grey roots, and her family roots; especially her Great Grandmother Winifred who ran away from her own wealthy roots with a Gypsy boy she loved, eventually becoming a renowned fairground fortune-teller called Madam Olga whose clients included Lady Astor and WWII codebreaker Alan Turing.
Topsie has teamed up with her own alter ego, Nathan Kiley, to explore their shared roots and their shared route from West End star [Chicago, Orpheus -Young Vic] to drag artist, to… who knows what in the future, a journey of queer self-acceptance?
An untucked evening for you to stare into Topsie’s Crystal Balls and to muse on what has been and wonder at what is to come…
A three-hander for two performers, ‘Crystal Balls’ is a fusion of cabaret and theatre cracking the codes of my own Traveller and LGBT history, in collaboration with my “other” self, West End actor Nathan Kiley and musician Connor Fogel.
