Drag BabySet and Costume Design
“As a queer person, is there a right way to build your own family?”
Dan, a misanthropic drag queen in his mid-thirties, only has one thing on his mind – to get on tv and become famous. That is until Sally, his estranged friend and only ever girlfriend, reappears and asks him to donate sperm so she and her girlfriend Sandra can have a baby.
As Dan grapples with this decision, the pair rekindle the close friendship they once had, causing a strain in his relationship with his drag mentee and friend Nathan, who struggles with this new arrangement.
Described by previous audiences as “Gorgeous. Funny and warm.” Drag Baby is a work in progress play that combines drag and new writing and asks the question: “As a queer person, is there a right way to build your own family?”.
