Oyster girl Nancy Astley meets male impersonator Kitty Butler and her fate is sealed. She falls head-over-heels in love, joins her music hall act and takes an exhilarating journey to the high and low-life of Victorian London.

Tipping the Velvet conjures up an intoxicatiing world of  'grease-paint', wood and spilling beer, of gas and tobacco and hair-oil combined...the essence not of pleasure but of grief.' From West End renter to East End 'tom', Nancy's rites-of-passage tale comes richly to life in Guildhall's showcase production of the first ever stage vsion of Sarah Waters' joyous novel.
