The Gentlemen’s Club

Set in a thriving underground club scene in Mumbai, Gentlemen’s Club follows the lives of various drag kings who perform in the city that never sleeps. The protagonist Rocky, aka Shammsher, pays homage to the legendary Shammi Kapoor and the golden era of Hindi cinema. Joined by a motley crew of women who revel in drag performances, this cabaret like show takes the audience into a grimy secret world that gives you the license to be whoever you want. Using dance, music, and some amount of projection, the play weaves an exciting and provocative tale of women and their celebration of masculinity. Gentleman’s Club, presented by Patchworks Ensemble, is devised by Puja Sarup, Sheena Khalid and Vikram Phukan
