Pecs Drag Kings

Pecs Drag Kings is an all-female/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.

I started my Pecs journey in 2016, joining them as a producer From here with the rest of the core team I've lead them through numerous full scale shows, gigs, festival appearances and workshops. In 2017 our smash hit Pecs: The 80s show sold out legendary East-End LGBTQ Pub The Glory before transferring and selling-out Soho Theatre downstairs. 

Our current work-in-progress SEX SEX, MEN MEN is being developed in association with the Yard Theatre and is Arts Council England funded. 

SEX SEX, MEN MEN

SEX SEX MEN MEN is a show about sex and a show about men. 

A departure from our usual style of cabaret this piece pushes the boundaries of cabaret, performance art and theatre. 

This transgressive material challenges audiences’ expectations of queer desire & sexuality on stage. 

Developed with support from The Yard and Arts Council England. 

Part of the Live Drafts Season September 2018

Full production Feb - March 2019

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. 

Critial acclaim for The 80s Show:
