Festive frolic Gwyneth Goes Skiing heads to The Pleasance

Awkward Productions will present new show Gwyneth Goes Skiing at The Pleasance this festive season.

The festive frolic will run from 13 – 23 December 2023 at the London venue.

Gwyneth Goes Skiing stars Linus Karp as the Goop-founding, Door-Sliding, Shakespeare-In Loving, consciously-uncoupling Hollywood superstar Gwyneth Paltrow, and Joseph Martin as her nemesis, Terry Sanderson, a retired Optometrist from Utah.

This camp seasonal spectacular recounts Gwyneth and Terry’s fateful collision in 2016 on the slopes of Deer Valley and the court case seven years later that enthralled the world.

This brand-new show from the harbingers of queer chaos is a story of justice, betrayal, optometry and, somehow, Christmas.

It recounts the biggest case to rock the legal world since Vardy vs Rooney. You’ve had Wagatha Christie – get ready for Gwagatha Christmas. This show makes the audience the jury, asking them to decide who’s guilty and who’s gooped.

Gwyneth Goes Skiing features a whole lot of fiction, a sprinkling of verbatim lines from court transcripts and original music by Leland (RuPaul’s Drag Race; Cher’s Christmas; Troye Sivan’s Something To Give Each Other).

Awkward Productions said: “We are gagged and gooped to be bringing you our take on the cultural phenomenon that was Gwyneth in court. Combining Christmas cheer and queer joy, we can’t wait to share the wildest and most ridiculous show we’ve ever created. See you in court.”
