Production pictures have been released for Rob Madge’s one-man show My Son’s a Queer But What Can You Do, which runs at The Turbine Theatre until 3 July.
Directed by Luke Sheppard (& Juliet, In the Heights) and written and performed by Madge (Les Misérables), the show celebrates the joys and chaos of raising a queer child.
When Rob was 12, they attempted to stage a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their Grandma. As Rob donned a wig and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their Dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy.

Grandma had a nice time though.
Join Rob as they delve into the archives of their old home videos in attempt to recreate this parade and celebrate the joy that can be discovered when parents champion the creativity and absurdity of their child…
