WRESTIVAL DAY 3 - A BATTLE TO THE DEATH FOR GENDER ROLES

Join a cast of phenomenal performers for two back to back shows bringing you a trip in to alternate realities of female wrestling.

SHOW 1 - GALZILLA AT 7PM

Clawing her way out of the dressing room - it’s the monster Sci fi, death defying women’s promotion of Galzilla.

The hard-femme, post-apocalyptic women*-led wrestling promotion is back at the Pleasance Theatre. Imagine Tank Girl taking on She-Ra; Madonna Vs. Cher in the toxic sludge of the Underworld; masked vigilantes; a drag queen emerging from an egg; female comedy; fury and collective, chaotic life force.

Last time we saw a woman possessed by fungus; Godzilla’s teenage daughter; a rejected Housewife Robot and the Queen of the Trash heap collide in four stonking watches - but who will we see this time?

Join us for a full immersion in to a matriarchal future where your favourite female* wrestlers take to the ring in new, ferocious ways all presided by drag Gremlin, Crystal Bollix!

Created by Indie wrestling bad ass, Rhia O’Reilly.

Expect wrestling mixed with Tank Girl, trash fiction and a lot of props

Perfect for: angry women and their supporters!
SHOW 2 - King of the Ring AT 9PM

Join us for a global first - a wrestling show run and starring drag kings - come find out what it means to be real men!

Rippling biceps, mullets, fake tan, tiny pants, repressed feelings and a love of the slap of muscle on muscle - wrestling is a world of a very particular type of masculinity - and King of the Ring is here to celebrate it!

Join the legendary Loose Willis and his drag brothers as he takes us through four wild matches starring wrestlers in new, hulked out versions of themselves.

Yes, there will be play by play commentary in front of a velvet curtain. Yes, there will be shouting then mic drops. Yes, you will come away very very amused and sexually confused - a great start to your Saturday night.

Expect wrestling mixed with 90s Gladiators, drag kings and Magic Mike!

Perfect for: fans of drag queens, kings, things and swings.
