Drag queen and party princess Topsie Redfern is getting back to her roots. 

Her musical roots, her grey roots, and her family roots; especially her Great Grandmother Winifred, who ran away from her own wealthy roots with an Irish Traveller, eventually becoming renowned fairground fortune teller Madam Olga. 

Topsie teams up with her own alter ego, Nathan Kiley, to explore their shared roots, and their shared route from West End star to drag artist, to both, to... who knows what next…? Topsie invites you to join her on a journey of queer self-acceptance, to stare into her Crystal Balls, and to muse on what has been, and wonder at what is to come.


A 5-star night like no other – don’t miss it… a true celebrity with a deep sense of who he is and where he’s come from G Scene Magazine 

Topsie Redfern’s Crystal Balls is not like any other cabaret show… a vulnerable, autobiographical journey through queer history A Younger Theatre
