RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Courtney Act will return to the drag queen murder mystery extravangaza Death Drop this summer at London’s Garrick Theatre. The star reprises her performance as Shazza July 10-11 for four performances only, with current star Willam departing July 9.
The show has been a Drag Race family reunion of sorts, with Act playing the role opposite All Stars 4 winner and Season 10 contestant Monét X Change as Summer Raines in a COVID-interrupted December 2020 run. A second run began May 19 with Latrice Royale as Summer and William—both of whom appeared on Season 4 of the series. Rounding out the cast are Myra DuBois, Don One, LoUis CYfer, Anna Phylactic, and Holly Stars.
Set in 1991 on the fictional Tuck Island, Death Drop follows the guests of a dinner party as their sordid pasts are revealed—and a murder mystery is solved.
Directed by Jesse Jones, the production is co-presented by TuckShop and Trafalgar Theatre Productions with John-Webb Carter and Jamie Chapman Dixon for Carter Dixon Productions, in association with Ameena Hamid Productions, M. Green Productions, and Piers Cottee-Jones Entertainment.
Capacity at the Garrick Theatre has been reduced to comply with COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing. Additional measures include hand sanitation stations, face covering requirements, and temperature testing.
