Claire Dowie's award-winning comedy on sexual stereotyping is one of Fringe 2013 hidden gems ... hilarious, angry, empowering, political, confused, tragic, subversive but most of all, human ... Tour de force performances are few and far between. In this one-hour piece Dowie gives just that.
★★★★★★ and Best of the Fest
(Edinburgh Evening News)

Still angry, still hilarious, and still right, Why is John Lennon Wearing a Skirt? is phenomenal. This is not only a blistering rally cry for gender equality, but also a life-affirming piece of theatre.  
★★★★★  (James Waygood Grumpy Gay Critic)

Why is John Lennon wearing a skirt? is a comic journey through female roles and dress codes  via "the knicker factor" school discos and errant sperm through the eyes of one young woman who wants to be a Beatle.
