From Susie L Ford….

We had a fantastic packed house, on the 16th of October for the MAYHEM show at the Diiva Restaurant, Esentepe.

The Mayhem players had been practicing for months to put on this show and what a show it was with lots of laughter, dancing, and singing, and who were the Drag Kings and Queens you may ask?


The Drag Kings were, SUSIE Q as Su-Paul & Arthur Bolloc, Kate Bell as Spikey van Dikey, Kath Gardener as Mo.B.Dik and  Linda Lamb as Master Luke Warm.


 The Drag Queens were, Martin Ford as Candy Cummins,  Peter Dunne as  Chi Chi Swanks, Dave Lavender as Mistress Lavandra Cox and Andrew Cloughly as Peaches D-lite.

The Kings and Queens were absolutely superb, Thank you all of for your participation and dedication to making this a great show and fundraiser for Tulips charity.

Editor’s note; We also received the following note of thanks from Sue Tilt of Tulips – Help Those with Cancer Association:


It was certainly MAYHEM at the Diiva Restaurant in Esentepe!

MAYHEM performed their outrageous Kings & Queens show to a full house all in aid of Tulips.

The work that must have gone into putting this performance together must have been intense. The whole evening ran smoothly with the group and individual acts all outstanding.

Thank you to Susie L Ford, Martin, and the rest of MAYHEM, to all the wardrobe and technical supporters, to Diiva Restaurant (the hosts of the evening), and most importantly thank you to everyone who attended and supported this event so well.

An amazing 5,850TL  was raised and we cannot thank you enough for this!


Sue Tilt
