Becoming Electra: A Queer Mitzvah

Becoming Electra: A Queer Mitzvah

This show is no longer running.

A heart-warming, hilarious and hugely enjoyable one-woman drag show about a Jewish girl trying to find her voice. Electra is turning 18 and wrestling with her identity: can she tell her queer friends she’s Jewish and her Jewish friends that she’s queer?

You’re invited to the party she’s throwing to find out.

With show-stopping songs and comical, compelling storytelling, Becoming Electra is a cabaret show like no other: exploring what happens when Jewish and queer cultures collide.

Written by Isla van Tricht
Performed by Guy Woolf
Music by: Isla van Tricht, Guy Woolf & Various

Supported by JW3
