Drag Race stars Jujubee and Kitty Scott Claus are heading to London’s West End to appear in Death Drop.

It will feature an all-drag cast including the show’s writer, Holly Stars for a “rampant, ridiculous romp” that features twists and turns.

Jujubee joins the West End cast ahead of her appearance in RuPaul’s Drag Race UK vs The World, which premieres on 1 February on BBC Three.

The new All Stars spin-off sees the return of top drag talent from across the franchise including the original American Drag Race, Drag Race UK, Drag Race Holland and Canada’s Drag Race.

It will mark Jujubee’s fourth appearance in the Drag Race franchise, having reached the top three every single time.

While Kitty Scott Claus joins Death Drop after reaching the finale of season three of Drag Race UK last year.

After the announcement she tweeted: “When I left drama school my first agent said I wouldn’t work until I’m 30.. well now I’m about to open as the lead in a West End show 2 weeks after I turn 30”.

Set in 1991, drag murder-mystery Death Drop tells the story of a gaggle of guests who have gathered on the mysterious Tuck Island for a dinner party like no other.

Tensions rise as the guests reveal more about their hidden secrets and pasts and one-by-one they start to sashay away (or death drop, literally) until only one remains and audiences find out “who-dunnit”.

The West End edition of the show has previously starred Drag Race icons Latrice Royale and Willam, while the UK tour edition featured Ra’Jah O’Hara and Vinegar Strokes.

Tickets for the show at Criterion Theatre are priced from £18 and they’re available at londontheatredirect.com.

Death Drop UK tour halts performance after a transphobic incident

During a show at The Lowry Theatre, Manchester in October 2021, the musical was forced to halt a performance after a “transphobic incident” took place in the front row.

The Death Drop Twitter account shared the next day: “There was an incident of transphobia that happened to one of our patrons in Salford.

“Our company, creative team and crew is made up of trans, non-binary, queer, LGBT+ people, we will not tolerate any bigoted behaviour whatsoever, your money is not welcome on Tuck Island.”

Holly Stars added: “To the transphobic heckling pig from the front row: GET TO ABSOLUTE F**K.”

The Death Drop account followed up saying: “Yes, we’re a drag show.

“Yes we’re a lot of fun. Yes, have a drink and enjoy yourself.

“Yes you absolutely WILL get kicked out if you think it’s acceptable to shout, heckle, interrupt the show, and be an arse.

“Death Drop is a play, it’s darn funny, and the incredible drag cast have worked, and continue to work, very hard…. Come along, sit back, and enjoy!

“Don’t be, in the words of Holly Stars, a d**k head.”
