Ep 31 – Priscilla, Dragged

Episodesandy aisbettdragla mamaLGBTIQ+midsummamusical

Happy Midsumma! This months episode celebrates all things queer and DRAG. Carla and Philip go and see two very different drags shows – the development separated by 20+ years but still very similar in sentiment. The reboot of the musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and the brand new play Dragged by Tasmanian playwright Andy Aisbett. Both shows raise lots of discussion on class, ockerness, Australianisms, gender philosophy and tiny cocktail umbrellas. Just when you thought you never wanted to hear It’s Raining Men again off we go!

In this episode, Carla and Philip see something very familiar at the Malthouse [The Homosexuals, or Faggots] and something much less familiar at La Mama Courthouse [The Age of Bones, part of AsiaTOPA]. Profundity ensues. Plus, at Intermission: Is The Book of Mormon memorable? And what got Carla to renounce her commitment to animal rights?
