Organised by Agent Burlieque, it aims to push theatrical boundaries with an underground cabaret show never seen before in Suffolk.

Featuring performance artists, drag performers, queerlesque, boylesque and traditional burlesque, the cast includes drag sensation Miss Cairo Mascara, Cabaret

star Phil Ingud, Tom Harlow, female burlesquer Felicity Furore and fierce effeminate hostess Meth.

“Boylesque is a glorious and diverse art form derived from burlesque. The acts booked are the very best on the UK circuit and we hope to start a debate about sexuality and nakedness, the body and gender and the audience that we attract will hopefully feel challenged about any preconceived ideas they might have about gender and sexuality,” says the show’s producer Sapphire Rox, director of Agent Burlieque.

They will be raising money for Suffolk Pride on Parade 2014 with some of the proceeds from their ticket sales be donated to the event this year.

“Boylesque and indeed burlesque allows for political and social ideas to be delivered through art as well as entertainment. We are exceptionally happy to be collaborating with Suffolk Pride to raise awareness of the importance of equality throughout Suffolk And beyond.

“Its events send out a message of inclusion and of acceptance and give young people the positive message that we are all unique, perfect and worthy of celebration. Oh and we really enjoy a good excuse to dress in rainbow colours and glitz.”

Tickets for the show are £20 per person. This year’s Suffolk Pride will be held on Saturday, June 21, on Ipswich’s Waterfront.

You can get £8 off tickets to Agent Burlieque’s Boylesque show on April 4. All you need to do is quote Ipswich Star offer when booking to get them for £12 instead of £20 both online and at the theatre box office.
