VARNISH

It takes star quality to get adopted 
  

…and Jonathan Mayor has it. 
  
“I was chosen, you see. Right from the start. They weren’t prepared to leave the quality of their offspring to chance!”  
  
In an explosion of sequins and songs, our prince of stage and screen is every inch the superstar. 
It’s been a tough journey from the cobbled streets of Oldham to the glamour of Hollywood. Tougher still for a Scottish-Mauritian adopted son of white parents. But let’s not dwell on that… your fabulous host is here to entertain you! 
  
Inspired by stand-up comedian Jonathan Mayor’s real life, Varnish is a blistering new play from Janet Taylor, exploring transracial adoption and the struggle for identity.  
  
Snap up your hot ticket to join Jonathan's live, star-studded audience and buckle up for belly laughs in this darkly flamboyant, varnished version of the truth.
