The true story of Fanny Dent, a self-conscious misfit in the unlikely world of burlesque. As someone who uses burlesque to tell stories, Fanny doesn't need to be beautiful and feminine. Or does she? Fanny has always believed that deep down, she is special. That she can outshine everyone else and create true masterpieces - if people could just recognise real talent when they see it. Of course, that’s impossible to live up to, but Fanny can't give up on the idea that she is a true genius.
Judge for yourself whether her routines live up to her lofty standards and join Fanny as she tells the story of why she started performing, and how real-life events inspired her to expose her fears, fantasies and ultimately, failures on stage.
"A hidden gem of the Brighton Fringe that took burlesque to another level.” ★★★★ (Broadway Baby)
