Queers

Curated by Mark Gatiss
Directed by Steph Roberts & Jarrad West
Original music by Alex Unikowski

Welcome back to The Prince’s Arms…

Everyman Theatre are thrilled to be bringing back the critically acclaimed production Queers to the Hub in 2024.

A young soldier returning from the trenches of the First World War recollects a love that dare not speak its name. Almost one hundred years later, a groom-to-be prepares for his gay wedding.

‘Queers’ celebrates a century of evolving social attitudes and political milestones in gay history, as seen through the eyes of seven individuals each of whom relives their stories within the familiar setting of a quintessential British Ale House ‘The Prince’s Arms’

Poignant and personal, funny, tragic and riotous, these seven pieces for male and female performers cover major events – such as the Wolfenden Report of 1957, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the debate over the age of consent – through deeply affecting and personal rites-of-passage stories.

Curated by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who) and directed by Jarrad West and Steph Roberts with original music by Alex Unikowski.

An amateur production by arrangement with ORiGiN Theatrical, on behalf of Nick Hern Books.
