About The Way Old Friends Do 

Britain in the late 1980s is rife with opportunity. Synth-pop, colourful fashion (we’re looking at you, Rubik's cube handbags!) and the dawn of computer technology make it a bustling and bouncy era indeed. In a small corner of a Birmingham High School, two classmates are about to make a cautious outing with one another…one is homosexual, and one is a fan of Swedish super-group ABBA

With thirty years gone by, a lucky re-encounter sends the old classmates on a limitless new course which sees them forming the world's first-ever ABBA tribute band - in drag of course. Will their friendship survive the difficulties of life on the road, one that consists of platform boots, false facial hair and endearingly sexy strangers?

This touching tale will appeal to everyone who can relate to what it's like to be a fan, whether it's of ABBA, yourself or someone else. The Way Old Friends Do is tender and hilarious in equal, glittery measure.
