It's the oldest profesion in the book, and it's everywhere you look.

From the seediest of dungeons to the most luscious of boudoirs, Mistress is there to guide you with a trusty whip in hand. But there's a new dominatrix in town, and she wants to leave a mark.

Tish is stuck in a rut. They're finishing their second year studying musical theatre in Bognor Regis (the Broadway of the south coast) and something is desperately wrong. They're told to be a leading man, not to put a foot wrong, and facing them in the mirror is a body they don't recognise. Something in them is screaming, longing to be free. But after a chance exchange on Grindr, Tish was given a chance to become something new, and make some money along the way.

Provocateur is a new work-in-progress cabaret show from London's drag fetish sensation Letitia Delish. This is the story of her journey into sex work, and how her experience as a dominatrix turned from a way to pay their rent, into their earliest form of gender expression that started them off on their path to discovering their transness.

With songs, sex and stories aplenty, Letitia will take you by the collar and unleash the power that comes from relinquishing control, and fuelling your inner desires. But when the corset comes off and the cash changes hands, can Tish separate the person from the persona? Sex sells, and selling out is just one flogging away.

International fetish fiend Letitia Delish (Lipsync1000 finalist, Drag Idol Semi Finalist) is known for her incredible vocals, acid wit and self-created custom latex looks, with her work as a Latex Couturier being shown on runways, dark rooms and even Rupaul's Drag Race. A familiar face in the queen kink scene, she likes to bring playful, sexy stupidity to venues across the horizon! From cabaret to club installations, she puts a middle finger (and more) to pearl clutching respectabilty politics.

Satirical, sex positive and so so stupid!

Previous sell out cabaret works inlcude Final Penetration! (The Glory, The Karaoke Hole) and God Save the Kink (King's Head Theatre).
