One of the recent success stories to come out of Inside Out’s LGBTQ Finance Forum (2017) and Telefilm’s Talent to Watch program (2018), Jump, Darling is an offbeat family drama set in the heart of Eastern Ontario.
When rookie drag queen Russell, a.k.a. Fishy Falters (Thomas Duplessie), escapes to Prince Edward County to fulfill his wine country fantasy, he reunites with his ailing grandmother Margaret (Oscar and Emmy-winning actress Cloris Leachman) to discover that he isn’t the only one dealing with drama. Margaret is determined to avoid the local nursing home, but Russell knows she won’t be able to take care of herself anymore. Torn between his career aspirations and helping his family, Russell is given the chance to decide what really matters the most.
Featuring, among others, legendary Toronto drag queens Tynomi Banks, Miss Fiercalicious, and Fay Slift, Jump, Darling blends comedy and drama as seen from the colourful viewpoint of a newcomer to the world of drag.
