Tucked & Plucked unearths the beginnings of the drag movement right here in Vancouver. The Rosie O’Donnell Show meets Jerry Springer in this glamourous and outrageous talk show co-hosted by The Queen of East Van, Isolde N. Barron (Cameron Mackenzie) and The Baddest Bitch Peach Cobblah (Dave Deveau). And if these real-life drag husbands weren’t enough, their star-studded lineup of Vancouver’s greatest and most influential queens will bedazzle parts of Vancouver’s history that you’ve never heard.
Commissioned by PAL Theatre in 2011 as part of the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary, Tucked & Plucked returns for this triumphant third installment, in an expanded and uproariously funny format.
