DRAG QUEEN TAKEOVER: We chat to stars of the musical Death Drop
Drag legends William and Vinegar Strokes are stars in the new play
The new play, Death Drop, is now touring around the UK. Stopping off at Cardiff’s New Theatre with shows until the 23rd of October, some of the star studded cast stopped and chatted with Local TV all about the hit play and getting back on the road touring post Covid-19 restrictions.
William, who rose to become one of the most popular drag queens in the RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise, said to Local TV she’s excited to get back working in theatres again. Vinegar Strokes, who featured on the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, is also co-starring alongside drag kings and queens from all around the globe. The play has been cited to be a barrel of laughs, filled to the brim with camp and over the top characters - much needed after the year we’ve been through!
Here’s a bit more about the production:
“Starring Ru-Paul US legends Willam and Ra’Jah O’Hara and a full cast of leading drag performers, Death Drop is the Smash-Hit, Five Star, Drag Murder Mystery direct from the West End! ‘A Dazzling and delightfully camp comedy’ that is ‘Jam-packed with hilarious one liners’, Death Drop is the guaranteed laugh-out-loud comedy we all need right now.
Set in 1991, a gaggle of guests gather on the mysterious Tuck Island for a dinner party like no other. The tension rises as the outrageous guests reveal their questionable pasts and hidden secrets. As the ferocious finger pointing and savage speculation begins, one by one they sashay away, until at the last, nerve-shredding, side-splitting moment we find out who-dunnit!
Also starring Drag Race UK Star Vinegar Strokes who reprises her originating West End role and Drag Race Down Under's Karen from Finance, Death Drop is ‘a brilliant new comedy’ and this rampant, raucous, ridiculous romp of a murder mystery serves up all the drama, comedy, twists and turns you’ll ever need!”, Death Drop Play.
