Boy in a Dress follows the life story thus far of La JohnJoseph, a third-gendered, fallen Catholic, ex-fashion model from the wrong side of the tracks as she moves from the council estates of Bootle to the strip clubs of San Francisco. It features the reworking's of iconic songs from wide ranging artists such as Leonard Cohen, Justin Vivian Bond and Cole Porter. Boy in a Dress unites all three of La JohnJoseph’s solo memoir shows: I Happen To Like New York, Underclass Hero and Notorious Beauty, in a ’retrospectacle’ exploring the intersection of class, gender, religion and identity formation from a somewhat unique cultural perspective.
