Still hot from it's run at The Edinburgh Fringe, Leyla Josephine presents Daddy Drag. This is a drag show about dads. Good dads, daft dads, dads who wear slogan t-shirts, dads that put on barbecues, dads that tell dad jokes, dads that are bad at dancing. This is a show about dads who are absent and dads who are not very good dads at all.

Leyla Josephine attempts to understand what it means to be a father through her unapologetic performance, drag costumes and complex but unconditional love for her dad.

Supported by Creative Scotland and The Autopsy Award.
