RETURN TO GREY GARDENS stars drag superstars JINKX MONSOON as Lil’ Jinkxy and PEACHES CHRIST as Big Peachy in this hilarious and loving tribute the Maysles’ documentary cult film Grey Gardens. Also featuring CHEDDAR GORGEOUS, ANNA PHYLACTIC and the ULTRA VIOLETS, plus further guest stars to be announced.
The stage-show is set forty years into the future and documents the lives of an aging drag mother and her bitter drag daughter who continue to perform for an empty house at the now dilapidated and run-down TOYNBEE STUDIOS. How did this happen? What will become of them? Will their famous and successful royal drag cousin step up and help out? Only the cats and raccoons know for sure!
UK producer Bren O’Callaghan (Manchester), Andrew Ellerby (London).

What’s that? You want MORE Peaches & Jinkx? Well OK then, get up close, sweaty and personal…

STAUNCH:

The official afterparty for the closing night and UK Premiere of Return to Grey Gardens at Toynbee Studios, this evening will be hosted by the fabulous PEACHES CHRIST (cult hostess of San Francisco’s wildy acclaimed Midnight Mass series) and Seattle’s own narcoleptic starlet JINKX MONSOON (winner, RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5).

With support from Manchester’s Cha Cha Boudoir family of glamour toads, gender terrorists and femme assassins, we’ll be taking inspiration from fashion icon Lil’ Edie’s make-do-and-mend sensibilities. No cash? No problem!

The evening’s theme is thrift, jumble, poundstore, dress in distressed or bin-bag couture! It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it!

Dressing up IS encouraged

Music, live performance, special guests, dancing, raffle, drunk people, gaffa tape giddiness, unidentifiable bruises and costume swaps GALORE! All spread over two floors of fun, dancing and mayhem.

Performers on the night include:

Our Friends from over the pond:

Our friends from upe-Nerth

Our Frie… well people we know from the darkest gutters of London

DJ duties through the night from BROOKS and GRACE SANDS.
