As part of her ongoing post-show talk series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock reunites with drag collective Sink the Pink for the second annual alternative Christmas offering at the Pleasance, Escape From Planet Trash. Got any questions?
I had such a hoot last year with Sink the Pink’s full-scale theatrical debut How to Catch a Krampus, I’m delighted to return for the second show in their Christmas trilogy, which reunites the team behind last year’s hit.
It’s 2050 and in a galaxy not too far from our own, Planet Trash is the most dangerous place in the solar system – the dumping ground for the universe.
As the countdown to Christmas begins, the planet faces a new danger, an impending solar flare that threatens to obliterate Planet Trash, and a discarded weapon the Intergalactic Government is desperate to retrieve. All that stands between Planet Trash and complete annihilation is a crack team of unlikely queer space explorers, and Ginger Johnson, the last remaining resident of the doomed planet, who is refusing to return home.
Can they escape the planet before it explodes, can they find the weapon and disarm it, and will they make it home for Christmas?
Sink The Pink return to Pleasance Islington for five weeks of queer, camp, Christmas fun. Featuring drag queens, comedy, aliens, giant space spiders, and a live score, Escape From Planet Trash is destined to become this year’s Christmas must-see!
The show is once again written and directed by Ginger Johnson who also stars along with Mahatma Khandi, Maxi More, David Cumming, Mairi Houston and Lavinia Co-op.
