Notting Hill. 1959.

A British Muslim woman, Tamina, is upset at the abuse suffered by the gay community & opens up her front parlour as a safe space. Not everyone agrees with her especially when it's revealed her reasons for helping hit close to home.

Based on true events, Auntie's House celebrates a heart-warming story of compassion and love amongst London's minority communities, reflecting issues which are still relevant today.

Auntie's House is the second play of writer Paul Stone's positive stories from LGBTQ history. Paul's first play, For Queen And Country, was a hit at the Edinburgh Fringe ('Beautiful, hugely affecting' ★★★★★ British Theatre) & was nominated for Best Theatre Performance by the Offies.
