Multi-award winning British musical comedy duo Flo & Joan have penned five brand-new songs to soundtrack the fabulous killer comedy and smash hit sold-out sensation Death Drop, which sashay’s back into London’s West End from 19 May. Tickets are on sale now from DeathDropPlay.com
The two sisters have worked with script writer Holly Stars, to craft five original comedy songs for the guests of Tuck Island in this ‘Dragatha Christie’ murder mystery, including ‘Tonight’s The Night’, ‘Til The Next One Drops’, ‘Dramatic Act 2 Song’, ‘Oopsy Whoopsy’ and ‘Gimme The Gun’.
Flo & Joan said: “We feel very lucky and excited to have been invited to work amongst the drag monarchy of Death Drop. We hereby take no responsibility for what happens on the stage of the Garrick Theatre during the show.”
The pair have had high-profile television appearances on Live at the Apollo (BBC2), The Royal Variety Performance 2019 (ITV), Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club (ITV) and The Russell Howard Hour (Sky) and their songs regularly go viral online, most notably with their ‘2016 Song’ which alone has to date received 50 million views across social media. They have written and performed songs for shows including Horrible Histories (CBBC), Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and Fresh From the Fringe, and This Hour Has 22 Minutes (CBC).
Described by Attitude as a “killer show” and ”rollicking good fun” by The Guardian, this 2021 summer residency (some of which will be socially distanced) of Death Drop will also feature some fabulous new casting: RuPaul’s Drag Race legends Willam and Latrice Royale will star alongside Britain’s Got Talent 2020 semi-finalist Myra Dubois, along with a full drag cast in this hilarious Dragatha Christie murder mystery – this show is like nothing you’ve seen on the West End stage before!
In what will be their West End debuts, Willam will take on the role of 80s pop sensation Shazza, alongside Latrice Royale as Summer Raines, a glamorous American weather girl living in London and Myra Dubois as The Lady.
LoUis CYfer, Anna Phylactic and Holly Stars – who all performed in the show last year – will return to reprise their co-starring roles, along with Don One who joins the cast.
It’s 1991 and a gaggle of guests gather on Tuck Island for a soirée like no other. The tension rises as the outrageous guests reveal their suspicious and sordid pasts, and one by one they sashay away, until at the last, nerve-shredding, side-splitting moment the surviving guests find out who-dunnit!
This rampant, raucous, ridiculous romp of a murder mystery serves up all the drama, comedy, twists and turns you’ll ever need!
