Long Live the King is a political drag cabaret based on Shakespeare’s Richard the Third. Jealous Richard of Gloucester wants to be King of England and uses manipulation and deceit to achieve his goal. He murders his brothers, nephews and any opposition to become King Richard III. Long Live the King takes and flips the traditional Shakespearean narrative of Richard III and features an ensemble of drag king artists - glitter beards and all - to exposed the pitfalls of powerful men brought to their knees, hegemonic decline, deceit, betrayal and manipulation on the path to glory.

Long Live the King uses music, movement, 21st century political blundering and elaborate costumes to explore the missteps of men in power in the Australian and international political landscape set against the drama, theatricality and betrayal of the Shakespearean world.
