Drag Performance is one of the most notable ridiculous techniques the Ridiculous Theatrical Company used to engender comedy and a deeper understanding of their works.  Playing famous roles such as Camille, Hedda Gabler and Maria Callas, Charles Ludlam was the master of performing as another sex.  Ludlam’s Medea is unique in how it encourages Drag performers to play Medea and other characters.

Here are a few articles to reveal the history and understandings of Drag Culture:
