About The Way Old Friends Do

It is the late 80s in Birmingham, two school friends make a cautious but bold decision to come out. One comes out as gay, whilst the other more unexpectedly declares himself a fan of Swedish super-group ABBA. Fast forward thirty years, the old classmates have a lucky re-encounter and form the world’s first ever drag ABBA tribute band! United, they embark on a tour complete with platform boots, fake beards and some very distracting eye candy. Can their adult friendship endure the ups and downs of life on the road?

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.
