Death Drop, more traditionally known as ‘a type of dance when a dancer dramatically falls backwards into a struck pose on the ground’,’ has taken on a whole new theatrical meaning.

Now a drag murder mystery sensation from the UK’s leading drag production company, TuckShop, the show is returning with a brand-new concept: Death Drop: Back In The Habit

Touring across the UK from this autumn, the new production – written by Rob Evans and directed once again by Jesse Jones – kicks off on 27 October in Bromley. The laugh-a-minute show will then visit Dartford, Wycombe, Cardiff, Crewe and will then land in Manchester from the 6th – 11th March 2023.

From the producers who brought Courtney Act, Monet X Change, Willam, Jujubee and Latrice Royale to theatres across the country, Death Drop Back In The Habit promises to be another “killer show…that absolutely slays.” 

TuckShop Creative Director and Producer Christopher D. Clegg said: “We cannot wait to sashay onto the road again with the next chapter in the ridiculous Death Drop saga, this time with a gaggle of fabulous drag NUNS! Audiences are in for a real treat as this hilarious comedy puts a whole new spin on murder, religion and, of course, drag. You will NOT want to miss this outrageous show.”

Death Drop Back In The Habit sees a gaggle of fabulous Nuns trapped in their Convent with a serial slayer slashing their way through the Sisters. As the clues are unearthed by Sis Marple, audiences will be laughing in the pews as the hilarious, fierce, all-drag killer comedy comes to its thrilling and uproarious conclusion. 

Previous casts have seen iconic drag artists including Latrice Royale, Kitty Scott Claus, Jujubee, Vinegar Strokes and Ra’jah O’Hara snap up leading roles, so we can’t wait to see the line-up once it’s released later this year!
