The art of drag, a niche form of self-expression previously limited to the fringes, has exploded into the mainstream in a big way. There are many hidden stories to this art form, and an electrifying new one-queen show promises to allow its audience a glimpse into the raw, glamorous and raucous life of a drag queen.
Party Snake comes to town for the Sydney Fringe Festival for five shows only after a critically acclaimed world premiere at Melbourne’s 2019 Midsumma Festival and a sell-out season at Adelaide Fringe.
This show promises to dive into the world of drag on a raw, personal and deeply philosophical level, and challenge preconceived ideas of gender and sexual self-identification in the drag community.
Party Snake is written by critically acclaimed New York playwright Kotryna Gesait and stars Melbourne-based performer Lachlan Martin. Gesait evokes a deeper conversation about identity with this work, uncovering the many skins we wear to blend into the many lives we lead and the many people we are.
If the five-star reviews this show has gathered so far are anything to go by, Party Snake is a must-see this Fringe. (AM)
Sept 17-21. Old 505 Theatre, 5 Eliza St, Newtown. $25-$30+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.sydneyfringe.com
