As part of her resumed post-show talk series, Mates founder Terri Paddock will chair a discussion following the evening performance of drag Christmas cabaret comedy Dog Show at London’s Pleasance Theatre on Thursday 2 December 2021. Time to get booking!
After How to Catch a Krampus and Escape from Planet Trash, Ginger Johnson and her merry band of drag queens return to The Pleasance with a new alternative Christmas show, Dog Show. And I’m back for the hat-trick of Q&As.
Live and Unleashed! In Dog Show, join London’s sexiest mongrels at Crappersea Dog Pound as they put their best paw forward and prepare for the Annual Rehoming Show. Can these old dogs turn new tricks? Do they have star pet-tential? Or are they all just simply too ruff?
Dirtier than a Doberman and prouder than a Poodle, this pack of queer canines will have you rolling (over) in the aisles as they do anything for appaws. But are whips and chains the only thing keeping them caged?
Dog Show is co-created and co-directed by Ginger Johnson (Sink The Pink’s Escape from Planet Trash and How To Catch A Krampus) and David Cumming (co-creator of Spitlip’s Operation Mincemeat & BAC Beatbox Academy’s Frankenstein: How To Make A Monster), who also appear in the show along with standout queer cabaret performers Rudy Jeevanjee, Azara and Mahatma Khandi.
I remember clearly when Ginger told me about the idea for Dog Show – and, as mum to a cockapoo named Lottie, how enthusiastically I greeted it – during our post-show Q&A for Escape from Planet Trash two years ago. I can’t wait to see the show in the furry flesh.
Following the 7.30pm performance on Thursday 2 December 2021, I’ll talk to co-creators Ginger Johnson and David Cumming and the Dog Show company. Any questions? Join us!
