Peach Cobblah (Dave Deveau) and Isolde N. Barron (Cameron Mackenzie) are the hosts in Tucked and Plucked

The ‘herstory’ of drag comes to Surrey stage

Zee Zee Theatre brings its talk show-style show to City Centre July 3.

Ever wondered about the ‘herstory’ of drag?

Zee Zee Theatre remounts Tucked and Plucked in Surrey, inviting audience to be part of the studio audience at a glamourous, often funny and thought-provoking talk show-style performance.

The show comes to town – this time with a Surrey focus – following runs at the rEvolver Festival and the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.

The on-stage talk show is co-hosted by Isolde N. Barron (Cameron Mackenzie) and Peach Cobblah (Dave Deveau). The real-life drag husbands will be joined onstage by the Queen Bee of Surrey, Mz. Adrien, the current drag Empress of Surrey, Amanda Luv, and by Mona Regina Lee.

The sometimes-outrageous evening is billed as Ellen DeGeneres meets Jerry Springer.

Barron is host of Apocalypstick: East Vancouver’s Drag Show at the Cobalt and has performing at events across Vancouver. As Cameron Mackenzie, he is the Managing Artistic Director of Zee Zee Theatre for whom he has directed Lowest Common Denominator, My Funny Valentine, Nelly Boy, Tiny Replicas and Whale Riding Weather.

Cobblah hosts Shame Spiral at 1181 and has also hosted HUSTLA and SHINDIG at The Cobalt. As Dave Deveau, he is Playwright in Residence with Zee Zee Theatre, where he has written Lowest Common Denominator, My Funny Valentine, Nelly Boy, and Tiny Replicas.

Tucked and Plucked takes place at Centre Stage at Surrey City Hall (13450 104 Ave.) on July 3 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $28, available by calling 604-501-5566 or online at tickets.surrey.ca. Tickets will also be available at the door.
