Preview: Drag Me To Love at Newcastle Alphabetti Theatre


We will laugh. We will cry.
We will sing and we will dance.

Drag Me To Love
Newcastle Alphabetti Theatre
Wednesday 28th - Friday 30th November 2018

Its golden stilettos, ripped fishnets, shoulder pads, and neon bobs. It’s Doncaster, 2009. Autobiographical, drag & storytelling.

So imagine this. You are 14 years old and you are a drag queen. Its golden stilettos, ripped fishnets, shoulder pads, and neon bobs. It’s expression. It’s glamour. It’s power. It’s Doncaster, 2009.

This autobiographical, three person show, combines drag performance with theatrical storytelling to build the world of Bonnie Love and The Bonnettes. Set against a backdrop of pop anthems and glitter we follow Cameron as he throws himself into a pair of 6-inch stilettos – meeting new people making both friends and foes. But not everything is as it seems and piece by piece the glamorous world of drag fades away.

It’s about being young, having that fire in your belly and seeing no limitations or rules. It’s the uncertainty of your own identity and the creation of a new one. It’s about finding a safe place between the two. Between boy and drag. It’s a reflection. An exorcism. A scrapbook.
