Queen is a scream. Queen is a sass. Queen is a laugh. Queen is a cry.
Queen is a voice.
Smoke Labours Productions is proud to present this new play by Sam Brooks that puts the everyday plights of the gay man under the spotlight and explores the contradictions, difficulties and joys of being a young gay man in today's society. Queen is all the parts of being gay that people don't talk about: the community, the everyday mundanities and missing out on vital parts of life that come so easily to everybody else.
Queen is a voice where there needs to be one. It's angry, it's funny, it's unflinching and it gets to what it means to be gay here and now.
