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 makes her first appearance at Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival with this much anticipated new show.


A Woman In Progress is a Project Arts Centre commission.

Tickets on sale from 19 August.

Priority booking available from 30 July for Friends of the Festival – prioroty tickets are only available from the Festival Box Office.

Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
