Prom Kween is the comedy musical based on the true story of Matthew Crisson, the first ever non binary kid to win the US high school title of Prom Queen and the bitches who tried to stand in the way.
Part parody, part homage to the American High School genre Prom Kween has an original book and score by musical comedy award-winning duo Rebecca Humphries and Joanna Cichonska. Prom Kween also satirises modern day America and Its contradictioons when it comes to what is acceptable. This is a country whose President wants to build a border wall with Mexico, whilst the highest rating reality programme is a race to become America’s next drag superstar. Prom Kween celebrates these contradictions whilst ripping it to shreds.
Prom Kween’s cast will include (in alphabetical order) William Donaldson (Boris Got Buggered, Theatre Delicatessen), Rebecca Humphries (Pomona, National Theatre/Royal Exchange/Orange Tree), Daniel Millar (The Play That Goes Wrong, West End), Lucy Pearman (one half of acclaimed comedy duo Let Luce) and Sam Swann (Pomona, National Theatre/Royal Exchange/Orange Tree).
Prom Kween will be presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at Underbelly Cowgate (Belly Dancer) from 3 – 27 August 2017 (Not 14th) at 20.45 and is suitable for ages 12+
