Courtney Act & Monét X Change are performing in a new drag comedy show in London’s West End.
The pair take the lead in Death Drop, opening at the Garrick Theatre on 4 December 2020. Tickets are on sale now here.
RuPaul’s Drag Race superstars Courtney Act and Monét X Change will be joined by a full drag cast in this new hilarious murder mystery – this show is like nothing you’ve seen on the West End stage ever before!
In what will be their West End debuts, Celebrity Big Brother winner and current star of ITV’s Celebrity Karaoke Club, Courtney Act, will play the role of 80s pop sensation Shazza, starring alongside Monét X Change appearing as Summer Raines, a glamorous American weather girl living in London,
Further casting includes Kemah Bob, LoUis CYfer, Anna Phylactic, Holly Stars and Vinegar Strokes.
The production will follow the latest government guidelines with a reduced capacity, socially-distanced audience.
On announcing the show, Courtney Act said: “I can’t wait to get back onto a stage in front of real people this Christmas and I especially can’t wait to make my West End debut in Death Drop! It’s such a hilarious show and it’s just what we all need after months of being locked away. The Garrick Theatre, I’m coming for you!”
Monét X Change added: “Let’s see, you have Monét X Change, Courtney Act, and a full cast of drag stars!? Ms. Thing, Death Drop is an absolutely brilliant show and I am super excited to perform it in London’s fabulous West End!”
A teaser for the show reveals: “It’s 1991 and a gaggle of guests gather on Tuck Island for a soirée like no other. The tension rises as the outrageous guests reveal their suspicious and sordid pasts, and one by one they sashay away, until at the last, nerve-shredding, side-splitting moment the surviving guests find out who-dunnit!
“This rampant, raucous, ridiculous romp of a murder mystery has gallons of gags, and more twists and turns than a drag queens wig.”
The piece has been written by Holly Stars based on an idea by Christopher D. Clegg and is produced by TuckShop and Trafalgar Theatre Productions.
