Dungeons & Dragons & Drag: Lucy Stoole And Other Performers Will Play Before A Live Audience

Stoole and other drag performers will crack jokes while audience members watch them build a fantasy world through Dungeons and Dragons.

Lucy Stoole said performing as a drag queen helped her realize she's non-binary. Now, she's using her art to help other people explore their identities.

ANDERSONVILLE — Drag queens will bring fantasy to life during two public games of Dungeons and Dragons this month.

Popular Chicago queen Lucy Stoole will be joined by other performers when she plays a round of Dungeons and Dragons at Mary’s Attic, 5400 N. Clark St. Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy roleplaying game popular since it first came out in the ’70s.

Stoole and the other performers will crack jokes and build a fantasy world through their Dungeons and Dragons characters. This is the first time the show — called Queens of Adventure — is coming to Chicago as performers normally play in Seattle.

Chicago’s Fox E. Kim, Joe Lewis and Dustin Diggory will play with Stoole during the first show on Wednesday. Seattle performers Arson Nicki, Fraya Love and Butylene O’Kipple will play on Oct. 16.

The shows start at 7 p.m. at Mary’s Attic, 5400 N. Clark St. Tickets are $13 and are available online.
