My Son’s a Queer, (But what can you do?)

25 January 2023 to 19 March 2023 The Ambassador Theatre 2nd Floor,

Following sold-out runs at the Turbine Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe and the Garrick Theatre, Rob Madge brings their triumphant celebration of the ups and downs of raising a queer child back to the West End in 2023 for this strictly limited season.

When Rob was twelve, they attempted a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their grandma. As Rob donned wigs and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy. Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction. Mum mistook Aladdin for Ursula. The costumes went awry. Grandma had a nice time, though.

My Son’s a Queer, (But what can you do?) is written and performed by Rob Madge (Oliver!, Les Misérables), directed by Luke Sheppard (& Juliet, In the Heights) with songs by Pippa Cleary (The Great British Bake Off Musical, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Age 13 ¾). It has set and costume design by Ryan Dawson Laight, video design by George Reeve, lighting design by Jai Morjaria, sound design by Tingying Dong, and orchestrations by Simon Nathan. The show is produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills.

 Rob Madge said, “I am so very excited to be bringing My Son’s a Queer back to the West End, this time at The Ambassadors Theatre. Putting on a show about when I used to put on shows in my living room continues to be the most surreal, magical thing and I can’t wait to share my brilliant, hilarious family and our story (which I hope is a relatable one) with more audiences. I hope that people leave My Son’s a Queer feeling brighter and uplifted with the knowledge that anything is possible when the stage is your living room!”
