Becoming Electra: A Queer Mitzvah

Sat 16 Nov
75 mins
£13.50 Full / £11.50 Concessions

A heart-warming and original one-woman drag show about a queer Jewish girl trying to find her voice.

Electra struggles to reconcile conflicting elements of her identity: can she tell her queer friends she’s Jewish and her Jewish friends that she’s queer?

You’re invited to the party she’s throwing to find out.

With show-stopping songs and comical, compelling storytelling, BECOMING ELECTRA: A QUEER MITZVAH is a show like no other: exploring what happens when Jewish and queer cultures collide.

Book a ticket for the performance of Becoming Electra plus a place on the Creating Character workshop with Guy Woolf (16+) for £20 – a saving of £5!
