Diary of a Gay Disaster

Where the best way to get through a gay panic is to sing about it

This show is part of MP Pride Lab. Explore the season & find out more here!

When Ellis moves in with Mia and Finlay - flatmates she found on the internet - she finds herself bonding with them a lot faster than she expected when they discover her teenage diary and insist on making a very long (and very gay) night out of reading it.

Exploring the overwhelmingly confusing - and hilarious - experiences that come with navigating queer life as a young adult, Diary of a Gay Disaster is a new musical comedy where three queer women get to grips with their gay panic the only way they know how: singing, and a lot of shots.
