JESSICA MARAIS STARS AS THE ICONIC LES GIRLS HEADLINER AND TRANSGENDER PIONEER
Based on the extraordinary life of the iconic Les Girls headliner and Australian transgender pioneer, Jessica Marais (Packed to the Rafters, Love Child) stars as Carlotta in a universal story about identity, family, tolerance and acceptance.
Carlotta lays bare the life of a confused teenager named Richard and her eventual emergence as the all-conquering drag queen and performer. Fêted, desired and imitated, Carlotta’s grit, bawdy glamour and determination to be the best woman she could be, endeared her to a nation while echoing the desire of a generation of women who also wanted more.
Spanning 40 years, Carlotta is an uplifting celebration about finding your place in the world and making your mark against all odds.
