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
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?

female* wrestlers take to the ring in new, ferocious ways all presided by
drag Gremlin, Crystal Bollix!

their supporters! SHOW 2 - King of the Ring AT 9PM
us for a global first - a wrestling show run and starring drag kings -

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!
the legendary Loose Willis and his drag brothers as he takes us
through four wild matches starring wrestlers in new, hulked out versions
Yes, there will be play by play commentary in front

your Saturday night.
