Berlin, February 1933, the new German leadership orders the closure of all ‘venues which promote immorality’. But Felix, the emcee of the depraved Fabulett, still has a story to tell. Set at the transition from one of the most liberal societies of its time with the world’s first gay rights movement, where the first queer anthem was composed, one of the first gay themed movies was made, and the first gender affirming surgeries were performed, to one of the biggest tragedies in human history, Fabulett 1933 deals with the fragility of achievements of a society and the struggle of visibility.


Fabulett 1933 is a new queer one-person musical with an original story and score, featuring music, ideas and lives classified as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis. After its successful run at the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where the show was praised for its ‘nuanced recognition of the capacity even for certain LGBT people to enable authoritarianism, intentionally or inadvertently’ (★★★★ The Scotsman) and ‘the clear relevance and applicability of the show’s message today, with the re-emergence of the far-right now being a threat to so many, in diverse and different places’ (★★★★★ Edinburgh Guide), Fabulett 1933 is now coming to London for a run at the Drayton Arms Theatre.
