Starring Drag Race royalty, Willam, Ra’jah O’Hara and Vinegar Strokes, Death Drop promises a sensational night of “rollicking good fun”, and you, lucky reader, are in with a chance to win two golden tickets to the show’s opening night in the Gaiety Theatre on Tuesday, October 26.
Also starring in the “dazzling and delightfully camp comedy” is Holly Stars, the spectacular show‘s writer.
“I had so much fun in the West End, I’m now excited to be touring Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre in Death Drop, a spectacular drag musical murder mystery,” says RuPaul’s Drag Race season four alum, Willam. “No spoilers please (I DID IT).”
The five-star extravaganza, a campy who-dunnit set at a soirée on Tuck Island, earned rave reviews at London’s Garrick Theatre. The “ridiculous romp of a murder mystery” will run in Dublin from October 26-30, before touring Salford, Cardiff, Crewe and Birmingham with more venues still to be announced.
“Absolutely thrilled to be back on Tuck Island and visiting Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre in this killer production,” says Drag Race UK‘s Vinegar Strokes, season one’s very own tell-it-like-it-is queen. “Whoever wants to buy me a drink, make it a double Redrum.”
Described by Attitude as a “killer show”, Death Drop will showcase a full cast of leading darg performers, including Karen From Finance alongside our Drag Race faves.
