My Son's a Queer (But What Can You Do?)

Written and performed by Rob Madge and directed by Luke Sheppard, the award-winning MY SON’S A QUEER, (BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO?) is back for 2024.

Once a cult sensation, Madge’s show has grown in stature to become WhatsOnStage Award winning and Olivier Award nominated and now due to public demand is set to embark on a brand new national tour visiting seven brand new venues.

When Rob was 12, they attempted to stage a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their Grandma. As Rob donned a wig and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their Dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy. Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction. Mum mistook Aladdin for Ursula. The costumes went awry and Ariel’s bubble gun didn’t work properly. Grandma had a nice time though.

MY SON’S A QUEER, (BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO?) celebrates the joy and chaos of raising a queer child and is testament to the power of unconditional familial love.

Age Guidance: 12+. Contains some swearing, a fair bit of precociousness and scenes of utter joy. May cause happiness!
Running Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes (with no interval)

Sonia Sabri: Roshni

ROSHNI (from the Persian word meaning light or brilliance) is an intimate crafting of dance and live music, made up of three distinctive and engaging dance pieces: The Call, The Light and The Wave which explore the highs and lows of life today.

The audience are taken on an emotional journey, through wordless storytelling, eclectic music, percussive dance and upbeat audience interaction, ROSHNI is both deeply moving and gloriously entertaining.

Just as improvisation is the heartbeat of jazz, improvisation is considered a core part of a solo Kathak dance performance – consequently no performance of ROSHNI is the same!

It is the perfect first introduction to those who have never experienced South Asian dance and something quite different for connoisseurs.

ROSHNI beautifully demonstrates the connection between music and dance.

Running time: 1 hour, 35 minutes (including a 20 minute interval)
