Tue 21 May, The Plush Lounge
Karen Fisher aka Fisch is part of the Rebel Dyke Project, a group of, mainly, lesbian outsiders from the 1980’s. Fisch has been a significant member of this lived legacy since going to her first Gay Pride march in 1978. She lived at Greenham Common USAF base for over a year and went on to have a raunchy affair with the leader of the all women biker gang The Black Widows. She co-promoted Chain Reaction (the UK’s first SM dyke club) and for ten years ran her own club nights Kiss, Come and Come North in London.
Three years ago Fisch began performing in drag as King Frankie Sinatra and now produces and hosts South London’s first drag king night - Kings of Clubs which takes place at the legendary Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Frankie has graced many stages with the biggest highlights at London and Amsterdam Pride. Fisch has finally written a one-king show, also called Rebel Dyke, which encompasses all of this personal SIStory in a one-hour jukebox musical.
Rebel Dyke premiered at L Fest 2018, the UK’s largest women’s festival where it was nominated for two awards: Best New Act and Best Arts Event. Both funny and moving, the Bad Boy with the Golden Voice will enthral and entertain you in this one-hour rampage through her riotous past.
Duration: 3 hours
