Heels of Glory
The Drag Action Musical
Written by Tricity Vogue
Composed by Richard Link
Written by cabaret performer Tricity Vogue with music by award-winning composer Richard Link, Heels of Glory is an original musical with an action adventure plot and tunes inspired by vintage Bond movies.
Richard and Tricity met as singing teacher and student, and conceived Heels of Glory seven years ago. Since then the show has sold out work-in-progress performances at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern and The Albany in Deptford. It was workshopped at Shoreditch Town Hall in 2014 and was awarded Arts Council funding for a two day sell-out run at Chelsea Theatre last year.
The story opens at nightclub La Douche, where international drag superstar Splendorella (Drag Idol finalist Topsie Redfern) is about to launch a new cosmetic to a waiting world of drag queens. But Supreme Sure Fire Foundation is not all it seems – its villainous creator, Allura Supreme, has a secret master plan to annihilate all the drag queens in the world. Budding young drag queen Honey and her tomboy best friend Jay are all that stand in her way. Doing Allura’s bidding are a hapless bunch of henchmen.
The show is directed by Stephen Heatley (Head of the Department of Theatre and Film at the University of British Colombia, Canada) with production design by Meth, member of drag collective The Family Fierce and star of London Live’s Drag Queens of London.
