Cleo is a strong, independent Drag Queen who don't need no Prime Minister... Unless it's her. In one-act we are kicked in the face with all things campy politics, as we meet three very curious people: A mid-40's stubborn politically driven Drag Queen wondering what it takes to be in the top job, a young Genderqueer Drag Artist, attempting to rid the room of stupidity... and a straight guy. On an accidental night, they toss, turn and twist the rules of basically everything in hope to make sense of what it is to be queer, all whilst constructing a glamorous p*ss-take/cabaret-esque political campaign.

But as I got to around eight, and I was wearing different things and just being different in general, people started calling me out.
