Queer Season 2021 line-up announced

17 June 2021

The King’s Head Theatre today announces the full line-up for its 2021 Queer Season.

Established in 2015, the Queer Season is a celebration of the most interesting and innovative LGBTQIA+ theatre being created in the UK, and features revivals and transfers alongside world premieres of brand new work. 

All That, a whip-smart domestic drama exploring differing attitudes towards love, sex and monogamy among gay men, will headline the season as previously announced. The play is written by Shaun Kitchener, best known as the writer of the critically-acclaimed 2015 play Positive (Park Theatre) and 30 episodes of Channel 4’s Hollyoaks

Other highlights include Death and Dancing, Claire Dowie’s spiky, captivating duologue of sexual fluidity and 90s rave culture; Wilde Without the Boy, a searingly passionate dramatisation of the letter Oscar Wilde wrote to his lover Lord Alfred Douglas in 1897, and Mating in Captivity, a screwball comedy centred on a bisexual love triangle.

The King’s Head Theatre’s Executive Director, Fiona English, says: “Queer stories by queer writers that explore, reflect and celebrate the queer community have always been a cornerstone of the King’s Head Theatre’s programme and we’re delighted to welcome audiences back to our home at 115 Upper Street this summer with these varied and exciting pieces".

The Queer Season will take place from Tuesday 27 July to Saturday 21 August 2021 with tickets available to book now on our website.
