Leila is popular, selling out the two scheduled shows, so we have added a third show –  Saturday June 24, 4pm. 

She’s fierce. She’s bearded. She’s looking for love.

Leila, our bearded lady-hero, simply wants to please her parents and lose herself in love but she’s not quite marriage material. Laugh, cry and sigh with her as she goes through her first period, first date and first plastic surgery consultation. When Leila meets her prince charming her whole world is turned upside down. Is love really all it’s cracked up to be?
