Bette Bourne, the renowned drag artist, is now in his seventies. In three separate parts, A Life in Three Acts takes us on his autobiographical journey. The idea initiated as a result of a series of recorded conversations the artist had with the playwright Mark Ravenhill who interacts with Bourne throughout. With the aid of photographic montage, the production consists of an edited, scripted version of these conversations.
