Part theatre, stand-up comedy, DIY queer lecture, pop-culture commentary, and meditation on disco music as a metaphor for queer survival. Basically….this show is camp AF.

‘Ooh, it's so good, it's so good It's so good, it's so good, it's so good. Ooh, I feel love, I feel love I feel love, I feel love, I feel love...’

It’s 2071….and the whole world is queer. Voguing and lip syncing are categories in the Olympics. There is a statue of George Michael on Hampstead Heath. And Starbucks own Pride (boo!).

Forty-seven years ago, in 1977, setting out to create the sound of the future, Donna Summer recorded queer anthem ‘I Feel Love’. But what will life REALLY be like for queer people in 2071, forty-seven years from now?

Armed with a vintage Donna Summer vinyl, playwright and performer Alexis Gregory decides to find out.

FutureQueer is part theatre, stand-up comedy, DIY queer lecture, pop-culture commentary, and meditation on disco music as a metaphor for queer survival. Basically….this show is camp AF. It’s also funny, moving, hard hitting, irreverent, provocative, and a very queer romp through an imagined LGBTQ+ future.


Alexis Gregory’s widely acclaimed, previous show solo show on queer activism across the decades, ‘Riot Act’ originated at Kings Head Theatre in 2018. ‘FutureQueer’ sold out its Summer ‘23 Kings Head Theatre work-in-progress show, and in November ’23 received two pop-up performances at the Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal Green.

Alexis Gregory’s previous work includes: ‘Riot Act’ (Duchess Theatre (West End) / Kings Head Theatre / Arcola Theatre / Turbine Theatre / Crazy Coqs / four UK tours / online adaptation with Hackney Empire currently streaming globally via Broadway on Demand). ‘Sex/Crime’ (Soho Theatre / The Glory). ‘Safe’ (Soho Theatre, London Theatre Workshop, Norwich Theatre Royal, Reading Rep, online - Hackney Empire). ‘Slap’ (Theatre Royal Stratford East / Channel 4 pop-up theatre show).
