Illustrious drag queen Nancy Nogood and her co-host, Rose Ritz, have been performing a weekly drag show longer than anyone should. Set in a post-apocalyptic Long Island City, recently overrun by religious zealots, who, along with their purity-preaching leader, Tina Featherbottom, threaten to shut down Nancy’s show and transform APAC into a Megachurch. Tonight though, a surprise bite from one of the local cockroaches infuses Nancy’s performance with new manic energy. Suddenly her tired, uninspired act is transformed into an origin story worthy of a comic book hero, and soon no one can stop her.
