Alex Reid is joining the UK première cast of the off-Broadway Charles Busch comedy / melodrama Die, Mommie, Die! at the Kings Arms in Salford in April, produced by Vertigo Theatre.

Reid will join the cast as Hollywood lothario Tony Parker who has a BIG secret, and will be joining Dale Vicker who returns to his role as the fallen star Angela Arden. The cast also features Emma Morgan (Noir) as Bootsie, Anna Hickling (Porno Chic) as Edith, Benjamin Gray (Fake News) as Lance with more cast to be announced.

Die, Mommie, Die! takes audiences to 1960s Hollywood to meet fallen star Angela Arden and her dysfunctional family. Angela is trapped in a hateful marriage to film producer Sol Sussman, bored with her life, she finds herself a little plaything, Hollywood wannabe Tony Parker.

It’s in Salford April 16 to 21 and moves to Upstairs at The Gatehouse Theatre, London from July 16.
