Rob Madge’s My Son’s A Queer (But What Can you Do?)
Following sold-out runs at the Turbine Theatre in 2021, the Edinburgh Festival and the West End's Garrick Theatre Rob Madge brings their triumphant celebration of the ups and downs of raising a queer child to London.
At the age of 12 Rob tried to stage a full-blown Disney parade. The scene, their house, the audience, their Grandma. Rob donned a wig and played a full cast of characters, Mary Poppins, Belle, Ariel and Micky Mouse. Their Dad pulled double duty as Stage Manager/Sound Technician and Goofy.
Alas, Dad missed every cue and the floats were all pushed in the wrong directions. Mum thought Aladdin was Ursula, who mistakes a street rat for a sea witch? The costumes went all wrong and so did the props. Ariel’s bubble gun wouldn’t even work correctly. Grandma seemed to have a pretty good time though.
This autobiographical retelling of social media star Rob Madge’s life sets out to restage that parade. And this time, nobody is gonna rain on their parade!
