Brighton Fringe

Award-winning queens, Crudi Dench and Kate Butch, return to Brighton Fringe with more BITE

Graham Robson April 6, 2023

Stakes are high in Drag Queens vs. Vampires – an outrageously camp comedy horror from the gals behind last year’s hit Brighton Fringe show Drag Queens vs. Zombies.

Local Brighton queen Crudi Dench and her award-winning drag pal Kate Butch star in this Hammer Horror-esque caper, which sees them jetting off to Transylvania for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest. Their trip becomes a bloody nightmare when their sexy Airbnb host Drac drives a wedge between the pair, threatening their lives and more importantly, chances of stardom.

Featuring the pair’s infectious brand of camp humour, audience interaction and fabulous musical numbers (including their own Eurovision single!) this fang-tastically funny new comedy from drag collective Haus of Dench is written by Matthew Stallworthy (as heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra) and Eleanor Mason (shortlisted for the 2021 Funny Women Comedy Writing Award).

Drag Queens vs. Vampires will be performed as part of the Brighton Fringe on May 6 & 7 at The Actors, who have programmed a fantastic line-up of queer theatre and comedy.

Venue: The Actors (Theatre), 4 Prince’s St, Brighton BN2 1RD

Tickets: £11/£9 concession HERE

When: Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7 from 9pm
