The Show

Three drag kings: a murderer, a jewel thief and a juvenille delinquent, are all locked in a prison cell together, living the most confused and tense love triangle you’ve ever seen. The play follows the power struggle between them as they express their admiration, jealousy, desire and inevitably their violence. Performed in drag for the first time in its troubled history, it is drenched in camp, over-the-top criminality- sexual innuendo, shirts torn open, vicious insults and grown men(?) crawling on the floor.

This show is a celebration and vindication of drag- we aim to promote and glorify an artform that is facing discrimination, opposition and active supression today. 

We also wanted to have a ball - which we did.
