DRAG ME TO LOVE

19 August 2021 to 20 August 2021Visit website

Theatre company and drag trio Bonnie and The Bonnettes is bringing their show Drag Me to Love to Brixton on 19th & 20th August at Paines Plough's Roundabout in Slade Gardens. 

“So imagine this: You are 14 years old and you are a drag queen. It’s golden stilettos, ripped fishnets, shoulder pads, and neon bobs. It’s expression. It’s glamour. It’s power. It’s Doncaster, 2009.

This autobiographical, three person show combines drag performance with theatrical storytelling to build the world of Bonnie and The Bonnettes. Set against a backdrop of pop anthems and glitter we follow Cameron as he throws himself into a pair of 6-inch stilettos – meeting new people making both friends and foes. But not everything is as it seems and, piece by piece, the glamorous world of drag fades away.

It’s about being young, having that fire in your belly and seeing no limitations or rules. It’s the uncertainty of your own identity and the creation of a new one. It’s about finding a safe place between the two. Between boy and drag. It’s a reflection. An exorcism. A scrapbook. We will laugh. We will cry. We will sing and we will dance. You are bound to fall, as we drag you, into love.”

“I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and sparkly night out with some toe-tapping tunes” Everything Theatre
