Guerl-Rilla Theatre

Coming in May!

Mae West's1927 comedy, "The Drag," is a rarely performed LGBTQ classic, that takes a fascinating look at gay culture and attitudes in the Roaring '20s. West was an outspoken feminist and social progressive who believed everyone had the right to be exactly how they wanted to be. In "The Drag," she turned her anger at injustice into witty repartee, telling the tale of a married but closeted high society man, who throws a drag ball that proves to be a fateful event in more ways than one. The premiere production was closed by the authorities after two weeks of sold-out performances to appreciative audiences.
