Gwyneth Goes Skiing

A story of love, betrayal, and skiing – where you are the jury.

She’s the Goop-founding, Door-Sliding, Shakespeare-In-Loving, consciously-uncoupling Hollywood superstar. He’s a retired Optometrist from Utah.
In 2016, they went skiing. On the slopes of Deer Valley, their worlds collided, and so did they – literally. Ouch.
Seven years later in 2023, they went to court.
Double ouch.
This is their story. Kind of. Not really.

After sell-out London runs, critical acclaim, a U.S. transfer and a run at Edinburgh Fringe, join harbingers of queer chaos Awkward Productions (Diana: The Untold and Untrue Story), as they transform Smock Alley Theatre into Deer Valley Ski Resort.

Written and performed by Linus Karp and Joseph Martin, featuring original songs by Leland (RuPaul, Troye Sivan, Cher), with a special video appearance by Trixie Mattel (RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 winner), and the singing voices of Darren Criss (Glee, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), and Catherine Cohen (Edinburgh Comedy Award winner).
