Awkward Productions are taking their viral sensation Gwyneth Goes Skiing on a UK & Ireland
tour this autumn. Gwyneth Goes Skiing will return to the slopes after two sold-out and critically
acclaimed runs in London, as well as a sold-out run across the globe in Park City, Utah, where
the real trial happened. There, the show was enjoyed by both Gwyneth and Terry’s legal teams,
as well as witnesses and jurors from the trial itself – with one describing the show as “99.9%
accurate” and another as “more entertaining than the actual trial”. This ever-evolving show
from the harbingers of queer chaos is a story of justice, betrayal and optometry, recounting the
biggest case to rock the legal world since law was invented. The show makes the audience the
jury, asking them to decide who’s guilty and who’s gooped.


Gwyneth Goes Skiing stars Linus Karp as the Goop-founding, Door-Sliding, Shakespeare-In Loving, consciously-uncoupling Hollywood superstar Gwyneth Paltrow, and Joseph Martin as her
nemesis, Terry Sanderson, a retired Optometrist from Utah. The show follows Awkward
Productions’ multiple award-winning, Edinburgh Fringe sell-out hit Diana: The Untold and
Untrue Story.


In an exciting development for Gwyneth Goes Skiing, Emmy and Golden Globe winner and
Broadway legend Darren Criss will provide the singing voice of Terry Sanderson. Criss is best
known for playing the role of Blaine Anderson in Glee (alongside the real Gwyneth Paltrow!), as
well as his lead role in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. Criss has also
starred on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hedwig and the
Angry Inch.


Alongside Criss, Edinburgh Comedy Award Winning comedian, actress and singer Cat Cohen will
lend her voice as Gwyneth Paltrow on the vocal track with absolute bops including I Wish You
Well and See You In Court.


Drag legend, television personality, make-up mogul and singer-songwriter Trixie Mattel makes a
special on-screen appearance as Gwyneth Paltrow’s mother, Blythe Danner. In 2015, the world
fell in love with Trixie on the seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and in 2018, she went on to
win RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.


Gwyneth Goes Skiing recounts the collision in 2016 on the slopes of Deer Valley and the court
case seven years later that enthralled the world. Gwyneth Goes Skiing features a whole lot of
fiction, a sprinkling of verbatim lines from court transcripts and delightfully catchy original music
by Leland (RuPaul’s Drag Race; Cher’s Christmas; Troye Sivan’s Something To Give Each Other).
Audiences are advised that Gwyneth Goes Skiing is BYOJE (bring your own jade eggs).
