The Primrose Hill Ladies Club is no place for ladies! It’s a boarding house and school for men – real men – who are compelled, for different reasons, to escape routine as well as their wives and family to live as women for a day or two, every now and again. Set in north London in 1968 and based on a real-life madam, Frau Mili Herschel, a Jewish émigré from Berlin, caters to the quirkiness of a diverse collection of clients from senior politicians, lords, judges, army and police officers, the odd rabbi to even the occasional bishop or two.
A play about a woman who the press once labelled, “The most shocking woman in Britain”.
