Michael and Claire are a drag queen/drag king double act, best friends, and in monogamous gay relationships. When the pair suddenly find themselves falling in love, they are forced to reassess everything they thought they knew about themselves, and question where performance ends and their real desires begin.
From queer writing duo Darwent & Gray ('Bed Reckoning’, ‘The Adulteresses’), 'The Rest Is Drag' is a hilarious and heartfelt blend of cabaret and musical theatre, which questions traditional understandings of identity, and the ways in which everyone, even queer people, can restrictively define themselves by labels.
Starring Jack Beeby (Six Inches Uncut) and Anna Burley (Ira Luxuria), and featuring an entirely original score, ‘The Rest is Drag’ is the polyamorous/pansexual/non-binary musical you’ve been waiting for! Bring your friends! Bring your lovers! Use it to come out to your conservative parents!
Warning: Contains mild coarse language, adult themes
"Filled with melodrama and 1950s showgirl kitsch, 'The Adulteresses' is a sharply written hour of charming comedy, powerfully delivered show tunes and campy good feelings...a classy, funny, nostalgic good time. Four stars." - The Age
"[a] funny, original musical comedy...incorporating clever, witty banter, some delightful poignant moments and a wonderful musical score, 'Bed Reckoning' is 50 minutes of engaging entertainment... a thoroughly enjoyable show and recommended viewing.” - Weekend Notes
