Return to Grey Gardens

7.30pm. £20 standard, £18 concessions & *£35 VIP. Please note that this event is now sold out.

And What? Queer Arts Festival presents Return to Grey Gardens.

Making its UK premiere, Return to Grey Gardens stars RuPaul’s Drag Race Winner Jinkx Monsoon as Lil’ Jinkxy and San Francisco drag icon Peaches Christ as Big Peachy and is written & directed by Peaches’ alter-ego Joshua Grannell.

The stage-show is set 40 years into the future and documents the lives of an ageing drag mother and her bitter drag daughter who continue to perform for an empty house at the now dilapidated and run-down Toynbee Studios Theatre. What will become of them? Can their only friend Jerry help out or will they be stuck performing for the cats and raccoons for all eternity?

Following sold-out shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, and Provincetown, this hilarious stage show spoofs the cult classic Maysles brothers' seminal 1976 documentary Grey Gardens.
