April 1870: Fanny and Stella were no ordinary Victorian women. They were young men who liked to dress as women: Frederick Park and Ernest Boulton. Stella was the most beautiful female impersonator of her day, Fanny her inseparable companion. But the Metropolitan Police were secretly plotting their downfall. They were arrested and subjected to a sensational show trial in Westminster Hall where every last, lascivious detail of their lives was lapped up by an incredulous public. With a cast of peers and politicians, detectives and drag queens, Fanny and Stella is a dazzling and enthralling Victorian peepshow.
