Pleasance Theatre: Escape from Planet Trash

Love theatre?
Love sci-fi?
Then you’ll love Escape from Planet Trash

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.

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?

Sink The Pink 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!

Show will be on from 20 November to 22 December.

    The queer collective Sink the Pink is back at the Pleasance Theatre for its Christmas show called Escape from Planet Trash. It’s basically a pantomine but queer-filled. It has a lot of slapstick jokes and cheap comedy but also has a crazy plotline that looks like a hodgepodge of plots from more famous movies or forms of entertainment. There was a segment that used a section of Greta Thunberg’s speech which was comical in it’s appearance. It also uses a lot of famous tunes but replaces the lyrics to match the plot, which results in a lot of original laughter. The beginning of the show was a bit slow and I had to admit it was a bit hard to follow at first, but the second half was really entertaining.
