★★★★★ ‘Showcases just how fabulously diverse the LGBTQ+ umbrella can be.’ London Theatre 1
★★★★ ‘The future of compelling queer theatre is in very good hands.’ Jack the Lad

‘Full Disclosure is a marvel of a company. Young, impassioned and so badly needed, creating theatre that is committed, relevant and gloriously entertaining. If I was a reviewer, this would be a five star review, but I’m no reviewer – just one of their many fans.’ – Rikki Beadle-Blair

Romance Romance @ Above The Stag Theatre

Romance Romance @ Above The Stag Theatre

This charming and intelligent musical brings together two contrasting stories, set 100 years apart.

In late 19th Century Vienna, two bored high-society lovers disguise themselves as struggling members of the working class. Can their love survive without the comforts and luxuries they’re used to? And 100 years later, two couples rent a beach house in The Hamptons, where a spot of extramarital flirtation might explode into something more.

Romance Romance was nominated for five Tony Awards for its Broadway run. This new production reimagines it as a brilliantly entertaining exploration of gay attraction and how times have changed.

Rotterdam @ Birmingham Repertory Theatre
May 20 – May 22 all-day
Rotterdam @ Birmingham Repertory Theatre

Following a critically-acclaimed West End run Rotterdam comes to The REP.

It’s New Year in Rotterdam, and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she’s gay. But before she can hit send, her girlfriend Fiona reveals that he has always identified as a man and now wants to start living as one named Adrian.

As Adrian begins his transition, Alice must face a question she never thought she’d ask… does this mean she’s straight?

A bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home from writer Jon Brittain, co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, and writer of What Would Spock Do? and The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo.
