Join us for an evening with musical theatre stars in this new LGBTQ+ song cycle celebrating everything it means to be gay.
Nicole Raquel Dennis (Dreamgirls, Dear Evan Hansen), Jaz Terry (Kinky Boots, & Juliet), Meg Hill (Heathers, But I’m A Cheerleader) and Barry O’Reilly (Legacy, Judy!) take on all the roles in this song cycle by composer Gus Gowland (Mayflies). Celebrating the shared experiences of the LGBTQ+ community this Pride month through a series of new songs.
A young gay man's sexual awakening in the Italian countryside, a woman pining for her neighbour, Oscar Wilde sharing his wit and wisdom on gay identity, and Anne Lister remembering her wedding day to Ann Walker. Each song a lifeboat, a story, a little moment of hope giving moments of joy in Queer Love.
Directed by Izzy Ponsford and produced by Lew Forman (With a Smile), with musical direction by Ben Mark Turner (Joseph, Drifters Girl).
