Gypsy Queen | King’s Head Theatre | 30 Aug-23 Sep (pictured)
Another show from King’s Head Theatre’s 2017 Queer Season, in London following a successful edfringe run, this play by Rob Ward centres on an unconventional love story. ‘Gorgeous’ George O’Connell, hero to his people and Gypsy King, leaves the world of travellers behind him to become a professional boxer, and finds gay fellow fighter Dane ‘The Pain’ Samson occupying the opposite corner.

Talk Radio | Old Red Lion Theatre | 29 Aug-23 Sep
A production of Eric Bogosian’s Pulitzer winning 1987 play ‘Talk Radio’, marking thirty years since its first staging, brought to you by the team behind the 2015 resurrection of Arthur Miller’s first play ‘No Villain’. Looks like a great cast, and of course the themes are as relevant now as they were back in the eighties. See the venue website here for details and to book.

Deadline Day | Theatre N16 | 29 Aug-16 Sep
