  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Inspired by a true story, Kinky Boots sees Charlie Price set about rescuing his dad's ailing Northampton shoe factory, which has been the pride and joy of his family for generations.

Facing the imminent closure of the factory, Charlie begins to feel all is lost. A chance encounter with sassy, flamboyant Soho cabaret star Lola provides a glimmer of hope and a surprising last chance for the factory and its employees.

Lola's quest for stylish, kinky women's boots (for men) might just provide the answer to Charlie's prayers but is Northampton open-minded enough for the likes of Lola?
