Lady Christina leaves the stage after another performance above another pub. Drag has become a drag and tonight could be her last ever show. But when the make-up comes off, the face in the mirror takes Chris Laneghan back to life before Christina came along. Can he live if living is without her? Step off the stage, leave the glamour and the costumes behind and get to know the person behind the make-up. 'Noble and thought-provoking' **** (TheWeeReview.com). 'Gripping and intense' (BuxtonFringe.org.uk). 'A coruscating performance. Well worth a visit' (Gscene.com).

Make-up premiered at Brighton Fringe in October 2020 (yes, there was a festival then!). In the same week it was streamed to audiences worldwide as part of San Francisco's Marsh Theatre Online Solo Fest. It has since been performed at Buxton Fringe (where it was nominated for Best Production and Best Male Actor awards in 2021) GM Fringe and across Scotland. Two years later than planned, it's coming to Edinburgh!

'The writing and performance throughout Make-Up work together to create an absolutely real character, with all the messy complexities, contradictions and – yes – flaws that entails. But the thing that really lifts Make-Up to the next level is the humanity of it all. It’s a confident piece of writing and direction, brought to life by a truly compelling performance from Taylor.' HANNAH KATE - NORTH MANCHESTER FM

'Moj Taylor gives us a powerful set of mental images through his quietly angry performance. Layer upon layer is warmly/brutally exposed and we learn and appreciate more and more what has become a muddled life. We come out challenged, disturbed, not quite angry: it’s a sharply-observed piece which raises questions, answers some, and raises more.' BUXTON FRINGE REVIEW
