Award Nominated Vertigo Theatre Productions bring the smash hit Charles Busch Off Broadway play 'Die, Mommie, Die!' to the UK opening March 23rd at Taurus in Manchester.

Circa 1960s, Angela Arden, a fallen pop diva is trapped in a hateful marriage to film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, an out-of-work TV actor named Tony Parker, Angela gruesomely murders her husband with the aid of a poisoned suppository. Angela's manipulative daughter, Edith, convinces her 'emotionally disturbed' brother, Lance, that together they must avenge their father's death... by killing their mother!

A brilliant campy melodrama that pays homage/parodies those wonderful (and slightly demented) 50's and 60's Melodrama's such as Dead Ringer, Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.
A smash hit on stage in New York and turned into the Sundance Festival award winning movie, Die, Mommie, Die! is a show not to be missed.

Starring Dale Vicker in the iconic role as Angela Arden made famous by Busch himself. The rest of the cast include Adele Stanhope (Edith), Dave McLaughlin (Lance), Terry Dixie (Tony Parker), Paul Graham (Sol) and Dawn Mallitt (Bootsie)

With another Charles Busch play (Psycho Beach Party) opening the week before in the same venue and produced by the same team these are two great nights out at the theatre as the chance to see the legendary Charles Busch plays finally hits the UK.

Die, Mommie, Die! and Psycho Beach Party are directed by Craig Hepworth
