Some of the biggest drag names on the planet will visit Scotland this week as the popular West End show ‘Death Drop’ gets a revamp at Glasgow’s King's Theatre.
Titled ‘Death Drop: Back In The Habit’, this whodunnit comedy thriller sees a number of stars from popular reality TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race hit the stage in Glasgow as they bring this West End hit to Scotland.
Based on an original idea by Christopher D. Glegg, Death Drop: Back In The Habit is an all new drag mystery comedy taken from the popular “Dragatha Christie” 1991 play written by Holly Stars that exploded on the West End.
With throwbacks to a number of classic and cult horror hits, Death Drop promises to be one of the biggest drag shows of the year and promises unexpecting visitors from places as far flung as the Vatican.
Audiences have been warned the show is a ‘nunmissable’ experience that sees some of the biggest names in drag fight it out with to unmask their mystery killer in order to save the gaggle of sisters.
What is Death Drop: Back In The Habit about
Said to be a combination of “The Sound of Music and Scary Movie”, Death Drop: Back In The Habit is a riotous comedy that will pay homage to all your favourite horror films, including IT, Scream and plenty more.
The show will see a number of drag queens as they portray Nuns trapped in a Convent as a serial killer slashes through their fellow Sisters.
As the Nuns unearth clues one by one, audiences are promised a laugh a minute in the pews as the ‘all-drag killer comedy’ draws in on a thrilling and hilarious conclusion.
