09 Woman in Progress L


1970s Mayo, a boy with a mind of his own yearns for a world he's not sure even exists. He doesn't know where or how to start looking but the Pope's visit to Knock convinces him he has to try.

In this sharp but poignant stand-up show, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against the uptight traditions of rural Ireland; to towering plastique woman in wigs and false lashes, railing against the death of the gay culture that saved her.

Following the massive success of All Dolled Up and In These Shoes? Ireland's first lady of drag returns to the stage with a much anticipated new show.


A Woman In Progress is a Project Arts Centre commission.

It will blow you away because Panti, in her various [dis]guises, has been one of the most consistently intriguing voices on the alternative arts scene in Ireland for many years.
