"Look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under it"
: Lady Macbeth

Shane idolises Lady Macbeth. He always has done. Ever since she slithered into his world through Grandma's telly when he was small.

Tonight, Shane is lost. He's been stood up. He recalls his encounters with Shakespeare's sassy queen and explores their affinity as they slip in and out of being each other.

How far can becoming your idol help you find yourself when you feel anxious and alone?

Lady M is an honest and intimate one-person show that celebrates the slipperiness of gender, time and place.

1623 shared an early work-in-progress of Lady M at Derby Theatre last November and we're in the process of developing the show further through workshops, rehearsals and scratch performances.

We plan to tour the show in 2019. Follow Lady M on Twitter at @QueerLadyM
