Filmed exclusively for Soho Theatre's Home Collection. Adorable, charming, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Mae Martin comes of age in this internationally lauded hit show about identity, sexuality, biphobia and loneliness. Peering through the lens of her own fluid experience with love and sexuality, in Us, Mae Martin questions whether we actually need to label ourselves at all, and that perhaps those labels smother the nuances of who we are. This hilarious hour charmingly juxtaposes her liberal childhood milieu with her experiences in her contemporary life, telling the story of her plummeting through puberty and dropping out of high school along the way. ‘Martin’s gentle charm makes it all highly watchable.’ ★★★★ Times ‘Mae Martin has a bright future in comedy.’ ★★★★ Mirror Soho Theatre On Demand. The best shows from London’s most vibrant producer of new theatre, comedy and cabaret.

Filmed exclusively for Soho Theatre's Home Collection. The Queen of Ireland, Panti, invites you into her gender-discombobulating, stiletto-shaped world, exposing the stories behind the make-up to reveal the National Treasure she is today. In 2014, Panti landed herself in a legal sh*tstorm, dubbed ‘Pantigate’. Her speech about homophobia went viral, was broadcast around the world, remixed by Pet Shop Boys, caused a parliamentary meltdown, and fed into Ireland’s marriage equality referendum success. Hilarious and poignant, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against traditions; to towering plastique woman in false lashes making history. ‘Courageous and hilariously honest…fabulously entertaining’ ★★★★★ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine ‘Complete bliss.’ ★★★★ Guardian Soho Theatre On Demand. The best shows from London’s most vibrant producer of new theatre, comedy and cabaret.

The best shows from London’s most vibrant producer of new theatre, comedy and cabaret.
