An Abbey Theatre and THISISPOPBABY co-production
If These Wigs Could Talk (Tour)
14 May - 10 June 2023
Written and performed by Panti Bliss
Directed by Phillip McMahon
Following a sold-out run on the Peacock stage in November 2022, Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss is hitting the road with her smash-hit comedy show If These Wigs Could Talk.
First up is Dublin’s Vicar Street for one night only, followed by two nights at the MAC Belfast, and finishing with a three-week run at London’s Soho Theatre.
Fresh from making history on RTE’s Dancing with the Stars, If These Wigs Could Talk meets notorious drag queen Panti at 54, after a lifetime of accidental activism, far-fetched shenanigans and making a full time show of herself, now taking a moment to question what her purpose and place in this changing world is.
Expect salacious stories, impassioned polemics, and some seriously funny soul searching as Panti takes us from rural Mayo to London’s glittering West End to the Irish Ambassador’s residence in Vienna, where along the way the answer to her existential question presents itself where she least expects it.
Following a record-breaking sold-out run on the Peacock stage in November 2022, Panti invites you to learn from her ridiculous mistakes, laugh at her glittering failures, and share in her triumphs, in this big, beautiful and brilliant night out.
