Finally arrives in London for ONE WEEK ONLY!
Gasp! It’s here, it’s finally here, the Off Broadway smash hit by Tony Nominated Broadway legend Charles Busch is making a dramatic London entrance at Upstairs At The Gatehouse, and Angela Arden is ready for her close up!
Directed by award-winning Craig Hepworth, Die, Mommie, Die! takes us to 1960s Hollywood to meet fallen star Angela Arden (Dale Vicker in a star making turn) and her dysfunctional family. Angela is trapped in a hateful marriage to film producer Sol Sussman, bored with her life, she finds herself a little play thing, the Hollywood wannabe Tony Parker (Celebrity Big Brother winner, MMA fighter and Actor Alex Reid).
Now, Angela needs Sol out of the way, so comes up with a murderous plan; unfortunately, her family won’t make things easy. Between her bratty daddy’s-girl daughter, her sweet but strange son, and her alcoholic, love-struck maid, Angela has her work cut out for her, but this is a gal who will rise to any occasion……even murder!
Die, Mommie, Die! is a loving parody of the ‘Hag Horror’ movies of the 60s that usually featured ageing actresses like Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and Lana Turner in movies like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Dead Ringer, Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte to name but a few.
Written by legendary Broadway and Off-Broadway writer/performer Charles Busch (The Divine Sister, Vampire Legends of Sodom, Psycho Beach Party and the Tony-nominated Tale of the Allergist’s Wife) and directed by award-winning writer/director Craig Hepworth (Porno Chic, Fake News, Last Dance, Noir). The show will run July 16th – 20th July with tickets only £20!
