Nominated for 4 Tony awards including Best New Play. Set in 1962, in the picturesque Catskills mountains of New York, a group of heterosexual men escape from the City to spend their weekend dressed as women. In this cross dressing colony they leave their families, friends and city jobs behind to safely inhabit their female alter egos and release their inner woman. However, when given the choice to share their secret lives with the world, the group has to decide whether the freedom gained by their openness is worth the personal risk. This delightfully insightful and hilariously entertaining piece by the Tony award winning writer of Kinky Boots, gives us a glimpse in to the life of these “self-made women” as they search for acceptance and happiness in a high heel. Casa Valentina reunites producer Paul Taylor-Mills and director Luke Sheppard: the team behind the smash hit In The Heights. Taylor-Mills is also reuniting with producer Amy Anzel for the first time since their critically acclaimed 50th anniversary production of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
