For Queen And Country tells the story of Major Denis Rake MC. Denis was an actor recruited by Churchill’s Special Operations Executive to spy on the Nazis in occupied Paris during WW2. Denis had to be discreet… so he became a drag queen entertaining Nazi officers in a Parisian nightclub!
Writer/director Paul Stone discovered Denis’ story while making the BBCTV programme “Secret Agent Selection” and shines a light on the contribution of the LGBT+ community to WW2. Neil Summerville, “a beautifully nuanced performer” (WhatsOnStage) brings Denis to life through comedy, drama and song.
“Well-deserved, rapturous applause! *****” (The Audience Club)
