ShayShay's pilot scripts spotlight marginalised identities and underrepresented narratives in quick-witted, colourful stories. 

Ninja Kween

Comedy, 30 minute

When a struggling British-Japanese comedian accidentally gets a white one-night-stand cancelled for being racist, his career suddenly skyrockets, bringing the success he’s always wanted. But when his own use of Asian stereotypes comes to light, will he lose it all?

A bombastic character driven comedy, Beef meets Hacks, with the will-they-won’t-they hijinx of Starstruck. 

The Golden Script Competition - Best TV Pilot Finalist (2023)

Good Manors

Comedy-Thriller, 1 hour

Ten years after the mysterious death of their classmate, four Oxbridge grads reunite for a holiday. With the unexpected arrival of someone from their past, the group’s web of lies unravels, turning the idyllic getaway into a gothic horror of reignited passions, blatant betrayals, and unearthed secrets.

A mansion murder mystery with parallels to “White Lotus”’s glamour, tension, and punishment of the elite. It's “Saltburn” meets “Dead Hot” — a bit of horror, a bit more humour and a bucket load of betrayal.



The following plays were written and directed by ShayShay. ShayShay's original work focus on themes of identity, gender diversity, Asian experiences. Their work has appeared on stages across London, including The Vaults, Southbank Centre, & Pleasance Theatre.


The Vaults, 2022-23

Semi-immersive sequel to ‘Wicked’/‘The Wizard of Oz’, in which all the characters are queer.  Part-panto, part-musical with a cast of drag and cabaret artists.

"ShayShay’s script is hilariously topical, touching on a multitude of important topics throughout, including gender, sexuality and politics. Taking inspiration from both Wicked and The Wizard of Oz, this parody musical has parts which feel akin to a pantomime, is stuffed full of pop culture references and includes jukebox musical numbers, which are performed exceptionally well. Throughout, the show is delightfully camp and a pure joy to watch." - ★★★★★ Lost In Theatreland

"ShayShay has put together yet another parody masterpiece – hilarious, topical and full of fun. The main themes of climate change, political corruption, gender identity and inclusivity are masterfully woven into the pun-filled plot, keeping it relevant and engaging, yet wrapped in so many witty jokes and pantomime style scenes that it subtly puts the point across, without taking itself seriously.  " - ★★★★ The Reviews Hub

"Joyful queer panto infused with gender euphoria… it's anti-capitalist and explicitly queer, revelling in subverting society’s gender expectations... It's done with plenty of froth and innuendo, but also with a foundational sincerity that has the audience whooping in solidarity. " - ★★★★ The Stage

The Vaults, 2021-22

Trans re-imagining of the legend of Mulan set in Paris’ Moulin Rouge. A sellout success that extended from a 4-month run to a 10-month run.

Part-play, part-panto, pure filth. It's a full drag & burlesque spectacular. Plus, a four-course immersive dining experience.

"Written and directed by the fierce drag queen, Shay Shay, a hilarious cast bring us a story where Disney’s Mulan meets Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge in this unforgettable immersive performance... The room was electrified with a celebration of identity" - ★★★★★ London Theatre Review

"Writer and director ShayShay has taken [Mulan and The Moulin Rouge] and transformed it into a raucous, ebullient show... Colourful, filthy and funny. Ribald, big-hearted and well-performed." - ★★★★ The Stage


The Vaults, 2019

Synopsis:  Princess Jizzmine must marry if she wants to keep the throne, but the evil Jaclose (not to be confused with his cousin Jafar) has his eyes on the crown. Can Aladdin get his hands on the lamp and achieve his happy ending?

"An immersive dinning experience, and besides being the most interactive and well written one I’ve seen so far, it is also the filthiest I’ve seen to date ." - ★★★★★ LDN LIFE


"A cast of cabaret performers and drag kings and queens, you can expect a mood that is outrageous and filthy." - ★★★★ Broadway World
