What Have YOU Done to Deserve This?
What Have YOU Done to Deserve This? is a quirky performance piece that explores the absurdities of (queer) life through a playful mix of tragi-comedy via the inroads of drag, dance, theatre, stand-up (or stand-down), disco, rejection and destruction. In What Have YOU Done to Deserve This? ‘has been’s’, ‘wannabe’s’ and ‘gonna be’s’ come together through a working-class narrative underscored with themes of sex, class and toxic masculinity.
Warning: this piece may contain nudity, bad language, bad attitude and 1980’s music.
