Escape From Planet Trash

Escape From Planet Trash

Pleasance Theatre · 19 NOV - 22 DEC

It's 2050 and in a galaxy not too far from our own, Planet Trash is the most dangerous place in the solar system - the dumping ground for the universe.

Overview

As the countdown to Christmas begins, the planet faces a new danger, an impending solar flare that threatens to obliterate Planet Trash, and a discarded weapon the Intergalactic Government is desperate to retrieve. All that stands between Planet Trash and complete annihilation is a crack team of unlikely queer space explorers, and Ginger Johnson, the last remaining resident of the doomed planet, who is refusing to return home.

Can they escape the planet before it explodes, can they find the weapon and disarm it, and will they make it home for Christmas?

In their own distinct style, Sink The Pink and Ginger Johnson return to Pleasance Islington for five weeks of queer, campy, Christmas fun. Featuring drag queens, comedy, aliens, giant space spiders, and a live score, Planet Trash is destined to become this year's Christmas must-see!

Critic reviews

Howls of laughter could be heard as favourite characters or lines returned, and whoops and cheers were not in short supply

Theatre Weekly

Hilarious, full of talent and good camp fun

WhatsOnStage

Queer cabaret takes on science fiction in this ambitious big-hearted, festive show

The Stage

Groan-worthily unfunny jokes litter this blooper reel of a show about the last people left on Earth

The Guardian

The ability of the cast and quality of the production are almost enough to disguise completely a plot that never quite lifts off

Londonist

Super fun queer collective Sink the Pink’s latest extremely alternative panto is set on a dystopian, near-abandoned Earth

Time Out

The sheer breadth of imagination on display in the production is rare enough in itself
