At the Wake of a Dead Drag Queen

by Terry Guest
Directed by Damian Lockhart

EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 12, 2021

 

In rural Georgia, drag star Courtney Berringers (given name: Anthony Knighton) would like to welcome you to her wake. She has recently died from complications due to AIDS, you see. But make no mistake, this isn’t your grandma’s funeral. There will be no black frocks, no perfumed flowers, and definitely no crying. Tonight is a celebration.   

“Extremely thought-provoking and timely.”

-Sarasota Magazine (full review)
