Introducing Gender’s A Drag in conjunction with The City Of London’s Women: Work And Power – a programme of events and activities that examines the struggle for gender equality through the ages while celebrating a number of significant anniversaries in 2018.
As women continue to challenge and redefine gender roles across the spectrum of social, political and artistic norms, London’s Drag scene is expanding. Drag Kings (performers taking on traditionally masculine characteristics) are becoming prominent fixtures of the circuit and we are excited to welcome royalty to The Nursery Theatre for an evening of improvised drag – all the more thrilling, fascinating and unpredictable because it’s completely made up in the moment! Who will be crowned King of Kings? Comb that moustache into place and come and find out!
As one half of ‘The Dragprov Revue’, lovable soft boy Christian Adore improvises “musically flawless” ★★★★★ [The 730 Review], “radio-ready” ★★★★ [LGBTQ+ Arts Review] songs, sketches and raps for audiences across the country. Having produced their own regular sell-out shows in Oxford, and recently headlined at Rachel Parris’ Musical Comedy Club 2018, Christian Adore’s sharp wit, and even sharper cheekbones, are not one to miss!

The Bareback Kings
Improv comedy team. Just a bunch of regulars dudes. Sitting in a pub. Doing regular dude stuff.
Mr. Goldenballs, as he prefers to be called, is a highflying, ball-busting, womanizing city boy who likes to spice things up in the office with a little strip tease after his first coffee of the morning. Banker come strip artist by day, by night Mr. Goldenballs is a regular on the street boxing circuit, packing a mighty fine punch under the guise of his every so sexy alter ego, the Latino lover El Matadorrrr.
(Mr Goldenballs is a member of Pecs – an all-singing, all-dancing drag king collective)
