The latest government restrictions mean that The George remains closed and my temporary stop-gap show in Opium is no longer feasible. We await further developments (for better or for worse) and, in the meantime, live drag is dead again. The bony (and lonely) digits of online drag shows are beckoning – but I resist their lure for the time being.
But watch this space. A Resurrection is (surely) nigh!
Covid-19 has been a tragedy for many people. It has also meant that a lot of you have lost your jobs as well as the ability to have a normal social life. It came on fast and nobody is entirely sure when and how it will end. For those of us that work in entertainment, we feel trapped in our homes and limited by what we can do to keep the fun and laughter alive.
It will be some time before we can get back to the kind of productions (and the crowds) that made doing Bingo in The George such a blast for the past 22 years. In the meantime, it’s lockdown and ‘wash your hands’ and social distancing and online drag shows and wondering when will our lives begin…
I’ll be announcing some online antics soon. Stay well.
