Acid’s Reign

14 March 2023 to 19 March 2023 The Flair Ground

Relish Theatre are bringing an all-new drag cabaret play to The Vaults this March. Acid’s Reign is fully sustainable drag-cabaret play exploring the queerness of nature and how the climate crisis will continue to affect minority groups. 

From award-winning writer James McDermott this unique show will be performed by a star cast of drag artists playing Mother Nature, Sea, Land and Air. Repurposing the story of Dickens’s, A Christmas Carol and recycling camp pop songs as green anthems.

The play follows LGBTQ+ Business tycoon Alex Acid, who wants to build a gay leisure resort in their rural seaside hometown, but the damage to the local environment will be disastrous. They are ready to tear it down and destroy anything and anyone standing in their way, including Mother Nature herself, but Mother won’t sashay away, and Acid’s siblings (Sea, Land and Air) are waiting backstage to teach them a long-overdue lesson in environmental responsibility. Will Acid reign? Or will they learn to embrace all that Mother Nature has to offer? With the help of a little drag magic, Acid’s Reign forms part of Relish Theatre’s Regeneration Season – a trio of new LGBTQIA+ plays.
