Absolutely amazing, loved every second. Particular favourites - Ding Frisby was hilarious and creative and Maria Von Snatch was just everything you want from drag, a real queen! Brilliant show, a must watch!!

A Cambridge-based drag show hosted by Persephone Porcelynn and featuring variously gendered artistes – all with strong personalities that shone through. Nothing was spared in enthusiasm and gusto – and the crowd was swept along for the duration. We were treated to the usual extravagances in make-up, costumes and (where applicable) heels and the usual dance and lip-synchs one associates with the genre. Add to this some gymnastics, burlesque and witty solo singing/songwriting and you begin to have a complete entertainment. The icing on the cake from this group was their fearless but kindly fronting of a more serious message about discrimination alas being alive and well – the performance poetry on this matter was a moving highlight. This would have been pretty good value for a professional show but for a student group on a budget of zilch no doubt – bloody amazing. Fun, insightful, uplifting. Bravo!

BEST SHOW AT THE FRINGE!!!! Never in all my life have I seen a drag show with such a range of different talents and beauty and laughs! I’m going to see it again because I loved it so much, you’ll leave wishing it didn’t end!! Five stars!

Brilliantly curated mix of drag performances, all brought together by an expert host, to make a show which is equal parts hilarious, stunning, moving, and artistic.

An entertaining hour of all types of drag. Drop by and experience a pick-me-up from this talented group - from dance to poetry, acrobatics to a cappella.

Touring Cambridge-based drag troupe Dragtime venture to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Cirque Du Slay, an anarchic and eccentric drag variety show. What Cirque Du Slay lacks in polish, it makes up for in a rough and ready charm.
