DRAG QUEENS VS. ZOMBIES

A comedy horror play where the fate of the audience is in the fabulously manicured hands of two hapless drag queens. 

Feuding drag queens Crudi Dench and Kate Butch are hosting a spectacular cabaret night in a last ditch attempt to revitalise their careers. But at the start of a zombie apocalypse, their backstage bust-ups become the least of their worries…

A blood-borne bactirium is spreading across the country, reanimating the dead into disgusting zombies hell bent on eating the brains of the living. As the zombies invade the theatre, the queens must overcome their differences and use their unique talents to find their way out of the oncoming apocalypse and save the audience from a gruesome death!


Written by award-winning writers Matthew Stallworthy and Eleanor Mason (who has recently been shortlisted for the Funny Women Comedy Writing Award) this is the Haus of Dench’s first foray into a full theatrical play, having had great success with their award-nominated cult cabaret/club night “Lip Sync Lollapalooza” Crudi Dench is played by Stallworthy, who is currently touring the UK with the 5 star sci-fi improvised adventure “Any Suggestions, Doctor?” and Marcus Crabb is Kate Butch, known for their own award-winning solo shows and the queen on everyone’s lips in London (but don’t worry, there’s a cream for that).

 

Drag Queens Vs. Zombies first premiered at the Takeover Festival 2019 at York Theatre Royal to a packed audience in the main house, followed by a goulish run at the Pleasance, Islington for the London Horror Festival 2021 (pictures below provided by Harry Elletson Photography). Interested in having the apocalipsync coming to your venue?
