Sensitive Plumbing


NOW Festival 20, The Yard, London

February 2020


The Loop-the-Loop is leaking
Merry-go-round again and again
Slip ‘n’ Slide into a post-apocalypse fantasy filled with queer dyke sentiments.

Co-founder of The Wardrobe Ensemble and renowned Drag King Edythe Woolley returns to The Yard

to unearth the (queer) Greek myth of Diana and Arethusa, taking it into the future. Watch a post-apocalyptic story about violence and war being replaced by queer love and radical kindness. 

Hold on tight, we’re splashing into the beautiful aftermath of capitalism’s gross excess.
