By special arrangement with the Kings Head Theatre, the hit play 'Yesterday when I was Young' comes to London. This Award-winning comedy tells the outrageous, true story of Josie Pickering as she discovers Manchester's Gay Village and transforms from desperate housewife to dominatrix Madame.
Queer As Folk's Adam Zane created the play from interviews with Josie, now in her seventies and has captured a valuable oral history of the Gay/Fetish scene through the decades.
Erin Shanagher recreates Josie's remarkable life and her journey to the glittering dance floors of Manchester's Canal Street in the 1960s. With her friend Brenda in tow, Josie finds the twilight world of the butches and the femmes and unashamedly embraces her sexuality.
While Brenda is on holiday, Josie gets an offer that will change her life forever - and earns her a fiver! So begins Josie's transformation into a whip-cracking mistress of the night and a new life of whips, slaves and a little bit of cling-film.
