Glamorous Gran and Other Tall Stories is a lively collection of original children’s stories inspired by the lives of LGBTQIA+ people and their experience of the world; ordinary people living extraordinary lives. Written and performed by nightmare in nylons and drag superstar Ginger Johnson, they are gutsy, hilarious stories for switched-on kids, that just so happen to feature queer characters.
Ginger Johnson is a helium balloon in the shape of a woman. She makes playful, poignant work for theatre, cabaret, night clubs and beyond. Having cut her teeth on the drag and alt-cabaret circuits in Newcastle and then London, Ginger’s work combines disarming honesty with the irreverence of spit-and-sawdust entertainment to create work that is at once outlandish and sincere.
