and ASH are two british chinese gay men who
studied and drink lychee martinis together.
After attending the funeral of GAVIN, a closet
case from their university days, they start
examining the crow’s feet on their faces and
questioning the meaning of the labels in their
Mel, an aging scene queen with the
ego of Norma Desmond, believes life is a beauty
pageant with him always the winner. He rejects
the love of Todd, a provincial boy from the
Welsh valleys who moves to London to be with
him, in favour of quick-fix Botox sex to fight
his insecurities. But how long can he sashay
down the catwalk when his eye bags are bigger
than his Gucci bags? And who is going to be
waiting at the end of the rainbow when there
is no place like home?
Ash is tired of the jaded gay scene
where steroid bodies and the Atkin’s diet
are the only offerings on the menu and all
the macho posing only reveals a Farah Fawcett
in the bedroom. He meets Diane (a.k.a Dan)
a transexual from their college days with
a butch, sexy and straight looking ex army
boyfriend, Ross. Ash decides the only way
for him to find a real man is to click on
those Jimmy Choo’s. Will his foray into the
wonderland of tranny burrows and tranny chasers
bring him his dream man?
Not to be upstaged, the dead but
not forgotten Gavin has a posthumous secret
up his leg of mutton sleeves waiting to explode!
With witty one liners, underground
drag club, sex in public toilet and an all
male production of the Miss Pacific Rim Beauty
Pageant, CUT SLEEVE BOYS is a quirky stir
fried journey of self discovery and ultimately,
a makeover of the British Chinese gay experience.
