The premise for the new show is sillier than ever: set (loosely) at Crappersea Dog Pound, the pooches are putting their best paw forward in preparation for the Annual Rehoming Show. Which of them will find a human to accept them into their home?
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 the success of How to Catch a Krampus and Escape From Planet Trash, this year’s alternative Christmas show at London’s Pleasance Theatre will be the premiere of Dog Show, once again from the mind of Ginger Johnson, this time co-created and co-directed by Operation Mincemeat’s David Cumming.
Set in a dystopian future, Escape From Planet Trash is a campy, music filled extravaganza with a lighthearted self awareness, in which two space explorers embark on a mission to save Planet Trash from an incoming solar flare, ultimately getting more than they bargained for.
I had my own introduction to Ginger Johnson and Sink the Pink a year ago when I chaired a Q&A for How to Catch a Krampus, the first in a new queer trilogy at the Pleasance Theatre, which also marked the drag collective’s first-ever theatrical residency after a decade of mega club nights, festivals and glitter-doused parties.
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?
