    Millie is not like other girls.

    In fact, ever since she was little she actively traded in her fairy tales for mud, cut off all her golden ringlets and created her alter-ego, Michael (an absolute legend with the best banter). She’s about to learn what it really means to be one of lads, whilst she explores and subverts the insidious roots of gender stereotypes, turning what she thought she knew on its head. Join Millie (and Michael, of course) as they battle against the assumptions of their former selves, when being ‘not like other girls’ is not all that it seems.

    Part quest, part drag, part bingo, this multifaceted one person show strives to find a new approach to gender discourse. A witty, unflinching & truthful insight into growing up opposing the female narrative covered in 90s nostalgia galore.

    Supported by Arts Council England.
