The West End’s first all-drag production, Dragatha Christie, is opening just before Christmas.
We have endured countless months without theatre (thanks to a certain virus) and while Ms Rona is not sashaying away just yet, The Garrick Theatre have found a way to give us what we all truly want and deserve. A wonderfully outrageous all-drag murder mystery will be hitting the West End this December! [Featured Image: @gaytopix]
Death Drop: A Dragatha Christie Murder-Mystery will spill all the tea after two hours of keeping you on your toes. But this is no ordinary murder mystery. You can look forward to epic lip syncing battles, the filthiest puns and “more twists and turns than a drag queens wig”. Agatha Christie could never.
RuPaul’s Drag Race legends Monét X Change and Courtney Act will be starring in the show, alongside drag queen favourites Holly Stars, Kemah Bob, LoUis CYfer, Anna Phylactic and Vinegar Strokes. This fabulous play was written by Holly Stars and will take us on a journey all the way back to 1991. An American weather girl (Monét X Change) and a 1980’s pop star (Courtney Act) will head to a legendary soiree on Tuck Island, where queens will start disappearing and the murder mystery will begin. Expect suspense, sass and a whole lot of savagery!
Dragatha Christie was produced by the UK’s first and only drag-specialist theatre production company, TuckShop. They are responsible for bringing a number of epic shows to the stage, including an all-drag pantomime rendition of Cinderella. And they’ll do it again with this hilariously raucous show that will undoubtedly leave you in fits of laughter.
Under the circumstances, social distancing and a myriad of other Covid-secure measures will be implemented to keep the cast, crew and staff safe. Tickets are already on sale, so don’t wait too long if you want to see these queens in action.
