In a suburban semi on a cold winter’s evening, a collection of
family, friends and acquaintances gather to celebrate a birthday.
There’s Josie, the ageing dominatrix conducting business from her
living room and in no mood to celebrate; her daughter Brenda-Marie
with a wisdom beyond her years; Martha - Josie’s devout Irish
cleaner who’s none the wiser and happy to keep it that way; and, of
course, Lionel - Josie’s most loyal client with a heart of gold and
a secret yearning to wear ladies dresses.
But no party would be complete without entertainment, and for once
Josie has the night off. Elvis impersonator Timothy Wong has
entered the building and only the arrival of a very unexpected
guest could upstage the King himself.
Heartfelt, poignant, and funny in equal measure, Martha, Josie and
the Chinese Elvis captures the glimmer of promise and potential
that lies in all of us - shining a spotlight on the opportunities
that are out there, if only we choose to take them.
