Pecs Drag Kings
Daisy has been co-director and executive producer of Pecs since 2016.
Pecs Drag Kings is an all-women and non-binary theatre company who’ve created critically acclaimed shows for the LGBTQ+ community since 2013. Our drag king cabarets explore gender identities, politics & sexuality- to create cultural space for queer women, trans* & non-binary folk. Our shows are sexy, raucous & highly entertaining, using songs, dances & comedy to celebrate inclusivity, queerness & community.
Pecs continue to perform all over the UK, with long form shows, gigs, cabarets and workshops.

SEX SEX MEN MEN
Critically acclaimed SEX SEX MEN MEN was developed with The Yard Theatre and Arts Council England. The show ran for 2 weeks before being extended for a third due to demand. A formal departure from our usual style of cabaret, this piece pushed the boundaries of cabaret, performance art and theatre. 90 minutes of transgressive material challenged audiences’ expectations of queer desire & sexuality on stage.
Winner – IDEA Award – Offies 2020
“With consent at its heart and a strap-on at its hips, drag collective Pecs’ show is funny, smart and downright sexy.” ★★★★ The Guardian
“an intoxicating mix of masculinity and femininity, fucking with gender binaries and making space” Exeunt
“sex and masculinity in this queer, theatrical gem” DIVA Magazine
Pecs: The 80s Show
Pecs: The 80s show was presented at The Glory in March 2017 before transferring to Soho Theatre in December 2017. Both shows were a sell out and the show received a Off West End award nomination in the TBC category The 80s Show was created as a direct response to the political upheaval and the rise of the severe right-wing of 2016, drawing comparisons between the 1980s and today while also celebrating the incredible queer pop icons of the 80s we lost in that year.

The Drag King Cast
In the wake of COVID-19, Pecs launched The Drag King Cast, the UK’s only podcast dedicated to platforming and amplifying Drag Kings. The first series has had over 1500 streams already, launched a Patreon and we are currently working on a second series. In this 8 part podcast series, our hosts Jodie Mitchell (John Travulva) and Katy Bulmer (Loose Willis) interviewed some of our very favourite performers on what it means to perform as ‘male’ while navigating a largely cis male performance space.
Featuring guests from the LGBTQ+ Drag King community; CHIYO, Christian Adore, Oedipussi Rex, Sigi Moonlight, Don One Wesley Dykes, Trinidad & TooGayThough and Beau Jangles.
