Get ready for an Eleganza Extravaganza!

Illustrious drag queen Cheryl Hole and drag king superstar LoUis CYfer will lead an all-drag cast in the killer West End comedy Death Drop: Back In The Habit from Tuesday 3 to Saturday 7 January 2023.

Condragulations! The smash-hit Dragatha Christie sensation Death Drop is back!

Following three sold-out West End runs, the delightfully daft drag murder mystery is returning with a brand-new show: Death Drop: Back In The Habit written by Rob Evans and directed once again by Jesse Jones.

Miss Cheryl Hole (star of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Drag Race Vs The World, Celebrity Juice and The Only Way is Essex) will join Drag Idol UK winner, Death Drop West End star and drag King extraordinaire LoUis Cyfer to lead a gaggle of fierce Nuns confined to their Convent in the divinely hilarious drag murder mystery that ‘nun’ of you expected…

The glamorous nuns’ peace and tranquillity is suddenly shattered by a serial slayer slashing their way through the sisters. With the help of an unexpected visitor from the Vatican, can the magnificent Mother Superior and the rag-tag Sisters of St Babs save their convent, save souls and save themselves?

As the clues are cleverly unearthed by Sis Marple, you’ll be laughing in the pews as this fabulously fierce, all-drag killer comedy comes to its thrilling conclusion. It’s the heavenly dose of fun we’ve all been longing for!

Cheryl Hole said: “I’m so beyond excited and honoured to be part of the new cast of Death Drop. After seeing so many of my talented friends in the different renditions of the show, I can’t wait to step into the shoes of my peers and show everyone that I’m far from mediocre.”

LoUis CYfer starred in the original production when it opened in the West End in 2020 and 2021. They said: “It’s my absolute pleasure to re-join the cast of Death Drop and once again be the Nasty Nick of the cast ... there’s no better feeling than knowing that this year, I'll have my pick of who I want to pull my Xmas cracker with ….”

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK returns for its fourth fabulous season on BBC Three on Thursday 22 September. Top TV series such Drag Race have brought the amazing art of drag into the mainstream and with it some of the wonderfully colourful terminology used in drag culture. Some terms already existed in the drag world, while others have originated from the ever-popular reality shows.

Here’s our handy drag talk guide to get you ready for your extraordinary night with Death Drop:

  • BGB/Bye Girl Bye – A term used when one drag queen is annoyed by another
  • Death Drop – A dance move where a queen dramatically falls back into a stroke pose, usually at the end of lip-syncing to a song
  • Dragmother - An established drag queen who mentors a new queen (her ‘daughter’) how to get started; many queens use the same last name as their drag mother, creating family lineages, sometimes called houses ie as in hit BBC drama Pose
  • Eleganza Extravaganza - A showcase of a drag queens finest and most fashionable clothing and wigs
  • Fierce - Extremely well put together, well-performed, fashionable, beautiful ie "Her make-up looked fierce." "Her lip sync performance was fierce." Used positively and high praise in the drag world
  • Garage Doors - One solid colour of eyeshadow that’s heavily applied over the entire lid and up to the eyebrow
  • Meryl Streep Realness - Serious acting, instead of going big during a performance, acting more reserved
  • Shade – an insult or negative comment
