Tom Marshman

SUMMARY

Tom Marshman is mingling with fashionistas. But will his winning smile pull him through?

Like most men, Tom has an ambiguous relationship with his legs. So imagine his surprise when he was shortlisted for the Pretty Polly competition looking for the best legs in the country. Tom has suffered from varicose veins for a number of years but a newly found confidence encouraged Tom to delve into a world of celebrity, stockings, photoshoots, beauty pageants and gender misadventures.

In this intimate performance, Tom tells a brave story of misfits and transformation, hospital visits and rejuvenation.

Supported by Chisenhale Dance Space and developed at BAC and Bristol Old Vic Ferment. Winner of the first Embrace Arts disabled artist’s commission for Hatch, 2011. Developed in residence at the Dartington Space with the support of Dartington Hall Trust. Funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Co-Presented by Arnolfini and Mayfest

"A lively, fun and engaging piece of theatre."
