MASQUERADE

INSIDE WAS THE PLACE TO BE OUT

Written by Laura Lees | Directed by James Baker

"A touching, uplifting story of love and friendship"

Liverpool Echo

Following a successful studio run in 2019, Laura Lees heart-warming tale, based on a secret Liverpool institution, is back, in a brand-new staging at Liverpool's Epstein Theatre produced by Bill Elms (Jerry Springer The Opera, The Ruby Slippers) and directed by James Baker (Cherry Jezabel, 2Gorgeous4U).

Masquerade is a poignant tale of love and loss amongst Liverpool's LGBT+ community in the 1980's.

Mike loves Tony (but not like that). He's his best mate. To be confident, outgoing and open is a big deal in a city like Liverpool in 1986.

When they discover The Masquerade Club with trepidation, Mike gets a taste of the life he could be living. He is welcomed in with open arms, soon becoming the resident DJ in a club that is the centre of his universe. But their paths go in separate directions.

Outside of the club walls he needs to find the courage to tell his parents that he is not the son they want him to be. Will he find the strength to stand up for himself especially when tragedy strikes?
