Currently playing at London's Adelphi TheatreKinky Boots has wowed both audiences and critics alike, winning the sought-after 2016 Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

Based on the popular 2005 British film, Kinky Boots takes place in a declining shoe factory in Northampton, Price & Son, which a young Charlie has recently inherited from his late father. Charlie has never been interested in shoes and his city-obsessed fiancée Nicola wants them to live a more glamorous life in London. Upon discovering that the family business is in tatters, Charlie reluctantly attempts to reform the dwindling business in order to save the team of devoted staff. One such member of staff is Lauren, who refuses to let Charlie give up on her and the team.

After realising he knows nothing about shoes, Charlie struggles to revive the business. Help comes from an unlikely source as he rescues a lady from a fight, only to discover she is a fabulous drag queen named Lola who struggles with poorly designed shoes.
