Death Drop 2: Back In The Habit ★★★★ Garrick Theatre | November 8 - 19, 2022

What do nuns and zombies have in common? They both inhabit Rob Evans' completely wacky convent comedy, Death Drop 2: Back In The Habit. This is an evening that seeks to shock and amuse and succeeds fairly well on both counts. Just when you think the story couldn't be more irreverent the characters find a new bottom and just when you think the performances couldn't get more over the top the outrageous cast manage to top themselves. The plot is so convoluted that even the performers need periodic reminders of what is going on, but the audience doesn't care. They are here to enjoy an outrageous evening and they are not disappointed. Stars from RuPaul's Drag Race, Willam and Cheryl Hole are hilarious as Sis Titis and Sister Mary Berry – and what's a nun show without a nod to The Sound of Music provided by River Medway's annoyingly chirpy Sister Maria Julie Andrews. Dominating the stage and everyone on it, however, is Victoria Scone's formidable Mother Superior. When she is playing off against LoUis CYfer's Father Alfie Romeo the puns are flying and the 'nun-sense' is at its height. Whether you're a drag aficionado, or just have fond memories of Ken Russell's The Devils, you should definitely enjoy this dizzy and dazzling evening of comic chaos.
