9 - 27 Jan
7.45pm
£15/12
Tues to Sat only

Written and performed by Louise Jameson (Eastenders, Tenko, Dr Who, Bergerac) and Nigel Fairs, MY GAY BEST FRIEND is a heady mixture of high camp, melancholy reflection on friendships and the childhood dramas that haunt us all. Racquell is a 50something would-be diva who’s locked herself in the ladies, furious because her gay best friend Gavin isn’t there to support her; he’s sitting in a walk-in wardrobe about to become a father with a lesbian couple and a turkey baster!

“witty, articulate and touching. Jameson and Fairs play the duo with love and laughter from the moment the bolshy brassy and spikey Racquell locked in a karaoke refuge of a toilet kicks off proceedings. The beauty is in the writing and the development of the relationship between the well-spoken and sensitive Gavin and the fabulously outspoken and yet fragile Raquell. Both actors were delightful to watch…” G SCENE

 “As a portrayal of a friendship which is constantly in danger of souring it’s a very compelling piece… a relationship which seems to cover all the bases from deep affection to something like hate… My Gay Best Friend is a short, sweet, rather lovely evening of theatre.”  THE LATEST 7
