WINNER London Horror Festival Playwriting Competition 2019
In this acclaimed monologue play, Lady Aria Grey tells the haunting tale of her turbulent marriage with her recently deceased ex-husband. She killed him, you see, but she didn’t do it properly, and now she can’t seem to banish his ghost. Marvel as she glides effortlessly from memoir, to lip sync, to ghost story, to something altogether unholy.
Written and performed by Lady Aria Grey (AKA Callum Tilbury), Grey Widow takes the audience on an eerie, hilarious journey into the darkest corners of drag. So strap in, strap on, and prepare to summon some spirits – it’s going to be a bumpy night.
Lady Aria Grey is an award-winning writer and drag artist, who has written for theatre and television (PJ MASKS) and performed in drag in London, South Africa, the USA, and Romania. She moved to the UK in 2017 from South Africa, where she was raised.
