For the last time, it’s not Martin… it’s Vicky!

Written by sisters Nicola and Stacey Bland, Call Me Vicky is a debut play based entirely on a true story. This hard-hitting, comic production charts Vicky’s transition from male to female in a time that was far less understanding than the world we live in today. This poignant play stars Wendi Peters (Coronation Street, ITV; Hetty Feather, BBC; Quartet, UK Tour; Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched, Park Theatre; White Christmas, Dominion Theatre) as Sylvie.

It’s 1980 in Elephant and Castle. Martin and best friend Debbie are getting ready for another night out at Martin’s favourite night spot, The Golden Girl - one of Soho’s premier drag clubs. However, tonight is not a regular night out. Tonight is the night that will change Martin’s life forever.

Directed by Victoria Gimby, Call Me Vicky is an honest, frank and revealing insight into an important struggle that has been relevant for generations. Having grown up on a council estate in South London and worked in the back streets of Soho, drinking, drugs and violence were common place when Vicky was overcoming all the adversity and ostracism that surrounded her transitioning. Will the love of Vicky’s friends, family and drag queens be enough to get her through the toughest of times?
