Drama + LGBT+ + A Queer Interrogation


A darkly comic coming-of-age tale

This show is part of A Queer Interrogation, a season curated by Tom Ratcliffe for The Takeover.
Explore the full season & find out more here!

Days after Andrew ends his seven-year relationship with college sweetheart, Jake, he is messaged out of the blue by a former ‘friend’. This unwelcome advance triggers an emotional spiral as Andrew recounts his unstable first steps into the world of gay sex & queer identity... under the increasingly imposing guidance of Kevin, a teacher at his drama academy.

Naughty provides a frank account of growing up queer outside of a big city. It explores the common lack of safe mentorship for LGBTQ+ youth & the over-sexualisation of queer relationships.


First performed at Camden Fringe in 2021, Naughty was an OffFest finalist & Andrew has been nominated for a London Pub Theatre's Standing Ovation Award for their subsequent tour of the show in 2022.
