TIP: If you sign up for Peaches Christ’s fanclub, you get a code for $2 off tickets. You can sign up here.

The show, which is written and directed by Peaches Christ, parodies the Maysles’ documentary Grey Gardens, about Edith Beale (Little Edie) and her mother (Big Edie), eccentric relatives of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy who bicker and live surreal lives in virtual isolation and let their house fall into disarray. The drag show is set 40 years in the future, documenting the lives of an aging drag mother and her bitter drag daughter who continue to perform for an empty house, delving into their backstories and future.

Guest stars at the show will include actor Thomas Dekker (All About Evil and Gregg Araki’s Kaboom) and L.A. drag star Squeaky Blonde. The show runs 90 minutes, with the Either Edie Costume Contest to follow, hosted by Peaches Christ and judged by Jinkx Monsoon. Audience members are invited to dress up as either Little Edie or Big Edie, so find your best silk scarf and fur coat and join in!
