The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert — with drag performance
Part of Belfast International Arts Festival 2019. Introduction and live performance before the film by a fabulous local drag act. Priscilla celebrates 25 years since exploding onto our cinema screens in all its sequined glory. How does this cult classic stand up today?
When drag queen Anthony (Hugo Weaving) agrees to take his act on the road, he invites fellow cross-dresser Adam (Guy Pearce) and transsexual Bernadette (Terence Stamp) to come along. In their colourful bus, named Priscilla, the three performers travel across the Australian desert performing for enthusiastic crowds and homophobic locals. But when the other two performers learn the truth about why Anthony took the job, it threatens their act and their friendship.
