Move over, Michelle Visage and Bianca Del Rio—there are more RuPaul’s Drag Race squirrel friends coming to invade London’s West End.
Monét X Change and Courtney Act will be making their West End debuts in the murder mystery comedy Death Drop at the Garrick Theatre in London, Playbill reports. Previews begin December 3, with an opening night set for a week later on December 10.

Next time you death drop, reverse it and drop dead! From December 3 at the Garrick Theatre in London. So excited for this on so many levels: 1. I get to work with a wonderful cast of queers 2. We get to perform to a live audience again and be in the same socially distanced theatre dying of laughter 3. I get to leave the house 4.
Death Drop is an Agatha Christie parody with a star-studded, all-drag cast, including emah Bob, Louis Cyfer, Anna Phylactic, Holly Stars, and RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K. alum Vinegar Strokes.
The plot synopsis reads:
It’s 1991 and a gaggle of guests gather on Tuck Island for a soirée like no other. The tension rises as the outrageous guests reveal their questionable pasts, and the ferocious finger pointing and savage speculation begins. One by one they sashay away, until at the last, nerve-shredding, side-splitting moment we find out who-dunnit!
Prior to Death Drop, Visage and Bianca, both Drag Race icons in their own right, also made their first West End appearances in the Olivier-nominated musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. A movie version of that musical is slated to hit theaters next February—minus Visage and Bianca, sadly.
Death Drop is written by Holly Stars and based on an idea by TuckShop’s creative director and producer Christopher D. Clegg. Tickets are available now.
