Queen's Speech

 

In “The Queen’s Speech,” an aging drag queen gives a spellbinding final performance.

Rejected at birth by his father for his facial blemish, Sugar sought affirmation and purpose anywhere and everywhere, until she discovered her true calling in the glamorous world of drag. Now, lust, desire, and need intermingle with her pursuit of stardom. She offers a journey through times of abandonment, joy, and loss.
 
Playwright Terence Boyle gives us a sexy and contemporary adaptation of Cain and Abel, exploring a life constantly plagued by the need for approval. Sugar fights off feelings of melancholy in this final act as her memories threaten to submerge her in despair
