Bonnie and The Bonnettes: Drag me to Love

So imagine this. You are 14 years old and you are a drag queen. Its golden stilettos, ripped fishnets, neon bobs. Doncaster, 2009.

Set against a backdrop of pop anthems and glitter this autobiographical, three person show, follows Cameron as he throws himself into a pair of 6-inch stilettos. But not everything is as it seems and the glamorous world of drag soon fades away. It’s the uncertainty of your own identity and the creation of a new one. It’s about finding a safe place between the two. 

You are bound to fall as we drag you into love.

Uncanny Theatre: Outrage

It’s time to make the most controversial show ever. In a world where certain public figures get people talking about them no matter how shocking they get, Uncanny Theatre have decided to have a go at being famous themselves for once. Starting with the premise that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, they plan to stir up enough Twitter controversy during the show to gain them (at least temporary) infamy. With audience interaction onstage and online, the whole experience is framed as a game, silly, topical and playful. Until suddenly, it isn’t…

Holly Gallagher: Before (the line is lost)

You are 11 years old. Your brother's older friend takes you to a convention. A comic convention. 11 year old you thinks it may just be your new favourite thing.

Before (the line is lost) is a one woman show about Cosplay and growing up on the internet. It addresses the world of comic conventions and consent both in reality and online through storytelling, autobiographical experience, and verbatim materials gathered through interviews with people of varying ages, races, and genders from the UK, USA, and Canada.

Common Chorus: If I say Jump

Jenny’s a vicar. But she’s got problems. Her creepy ex-husband keeps sending her flowers and won’t sign the divorce papers. The church hall is being renovated by a dodgy builder, who’s being investigated by the police. And her best friend Danny has turned up in the vestry with a gun.

Danny has anger issues. He’s just had a fight with his best mate Benson. They’re in too deep and running out of options. So when he turns to the church Jenny has to choose between doing the right thing or doing the legal thing.

A bold and exhilarating tale of contemporary Britain, If I Say Jump is a show for anyone who has ever asked themselves “why did I just do that?” It skilfully blends storytelling, comedy, original music and a live soundscape to chart a morally ambiguous quest for peace and wellbeing in a chaotic time.

Recommended age 16+
