Directed by Drew McOnie, Harvey Fierstein's classic play follows drag queen Arnold who is looking for love in '70s Manhanattan. The piece has design by Ryan Laight, lighting by James Whiteside, sound by Seb Frost, and casting by Will Burton.

The production runs from 22 August to 13 October, and opens the brand new 200-seat space directly adjacent to the Battersea Power Station. You can find out more about the Turbine Theatre here.
