It has been announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Courtney Act and Monét X Change will star in Death Drop, a new socially distanced comedy show at London’s iconic Garrick Theatre!
Opening December 3, 2020, the Drag Race alumni will star alongside a range of drag talent in the murder mystery, Clue-style comedy, which includes Kemah Bob, LoUis CYfer, Anna Phylactic, Holly Stars and Vinegar Strokes.
Courtney Act will play 80s pop sensation Shazza, while Monét X Change will star as Summer Raines, a glamorous American weather girl living in London.
In a statement, Courtney, who is also the winner of Celebrity Big Brother 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!”
“Let’s see, you have Monét X Change, Courtney Act, and a full cast of drag stars!?” added Monét. “Ms. Thing, Death Drop is an absolutely brilliant show and I am super excited to perform it in London’s fabulous West End!”
Revealing the plot of the show, a rep said: “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!”
Directed by Jesse Jones, Death Drop is sure to entertain fans, especially its drag audience who will appreciate the campiness of it all. It’s basically Clue in drag! Tickets are priced from £15, and are available now!
COVID-19 measures taken by the Garrick Theatre will include reduced capacity, sanitation, face coverings, track and trace, contactless tickets, temperature testing, and the deep clean/sanitation of the theatre.
