Springboard: Drag Queens Vs Zombies

Dead fabulous new comedy about a pandemic (not that one)

Dawn of the Dead meets RuPaul's Drag Race in this hilarious, camp, horror comedy from the award winning queens of the Haus of Dench. 

A feuding drag duo are hosting a spectacular cabaret night in a last ditch attempt to revitalise their careers. But on the eve of a zombie apocalypse, their backstage bust-ups become the least of their worries. As the undead invade the theatre, the queens must overcome their differences and use their unique talents to fight their way out of the oncoming apocalypse and save the audience from a gruesome death. 

Starring two-time Buxton Fringe Comedy Award winner Kate Butch and creator of the famous York cult nightclub/cabaret mash-up “Lip Sync Lollapalooza” Crudi Dench, Drag Queens Vs. Zombies is a high-kicking, blood curdling, camp musical spectacular.


Written By and Starring Matthew Stallworthy (Crudi Dench)

Director Matthew Stallworthy
