LGBT+ Reading: The Drag

by Mae West

Monday 10 July, 7.30pm
Running Time: Approx 1 hour and 30 minutes. There is no interval.

Directed by Polly Stenham

 

The play that scandalised 1920s New York follows respected, married socialite Rolly. Son of a homophobic judge and married to the daughter of an eminent gay conversion therapist, Rolly is keen to keep his homosexual tendencies under wraps. However, when he decides to host a drag ball in his drawing room, events soon spiral out of control.

One of the first plays to shed light on gay counter-culture, Mae West’s rarely performed comedy was banned after ten performances.
