Frances Ruffelle to star as Queenie in The Wild Party at The Other Palace

Frances Ruffelle is to play Queenie in The Wild Party, when it receives it’s first major UK production at The Other Palace from 11 February 2017. Tickets are now on sale. Set against a backdrop of Manhattan decadence and 1920’s excess, The Wild Party tells the story of Queenie and Burrs, a Vaudeville showgirl and a Vaudeville clown whose relationship is marked by vicious behaviour and recklessness. In an attempt to salvage their toxic union, they decide to throw a party to end all parties. The guests are a vivid collection of the unruly and the undone: a cocaine-sniffing bisexual playboy; a washed-up boxer; a diva of indeterminate age; a fresh-faced ingénue; and a handsome Valentino who catches Queenie’s roving eye.
