Death Drop Back in the Habit at The Alexandra Birmingham 13 – 18 March 2023 – Casting announced

RuPaul’s Drag Race Superstar Jujubee will be joining the cast of Death Drop: Back in Habit UK tour, playing Sister Maria Julie Andrews at The Alexandra, Birmingham from 13 to 18 March 2023.

Jujubee will be joined by Drag Race UK stars Cheryl Hole, Victoria Scone and Drag King LoUis CYfer plus a full drag supporting cast. Jujubee previously starred in the original Death Drop show during the West End run in March 2021 at The Criterion.

Jujubee said: “I’m so excited to be returning to the Death Drop family in an entirely new play! I also can’t wait to go on tour and see more of Ireland and the UK. Get me on that stage now -it’s going to be fabulous!”

Death Drop Back in The Habit sees a gaggle of fabulous nuns confined to their Convent with a serial slayer slashing their way through the sisters. The laughs keep coming in this nun-missable new killer comedy – it’s the heavenly dose of fun we’ve all been longing to find.

As Drag Race UK recently returned to TV and continues to be BBC Three’s most popular non-scripted show, the popularity and fun of drag, combined with our nation’s love of a murder mystery remains inescapable. Lorraine Kelly, and drag superfan has announced she will host a one-off drag show Queens For The Night on primetime ITV later on this year. This show will have celebrity wannabe queens with their very own drag mentor, as they attempt to master being a drag queen. Alongside the release of new murder mystery film See How They Run, that remained top of the cinema box office throughout September 2022, the popularity of the art of drag and murder mysteries remain a firm public favourite.
