Cherry Jezebel cast

Casting has been announced for the world premiere of Cherry Jezebel at Liverpool Everyman Theatre.

Jonathan Larkin’s piece will open at the venue on 8 March running to 26 March.


After an open casting call with Pearson Casting, to ensure representation from non-binary, trans, and cis male actors, the cast includes Mickey Jones as legendary drag queen Cherry Brandy, Mariah Louca as her best friend Heidi Handjob, Stefan Race as the new non-binary queen on the scene Pearl Reckless and George Jones as lad about town Mo.

“The party ain’t over yet! As long as that music keeps playing, I’ll keep dancing!”

Behind the mascara, the wigs, and the six-inch stiletto heels, all that glitters isn’t gold. At least Cherry Brandy’s always got her best mate Heidi. But growing up queer in Liverpool is grim, and the queer family they’ve forged is about to slip through Cherry’s nicotine-stained fingers.

From the boudoirs to the bathrooms of Liverpool’s gloriously gobby drag scene, Cherry Jezebel is a riot of lipstick and split lips, of bitching and bruises. It’s a play that celebrates queerness while spilling the tea on the pain behind the polish.

The production will be directed by James Baker (Jerry Springer – The Opera at Hope Mill Theatre, YANK! The Musical) with set and costume design by Ellie Light, lighting design by Jai Morjaria, composition and sound design by Daniel Mawson and casting by Pearson Casting.

Tickets priced from £10 are available now from
