Rob Madge is an actor and playwright whose debut play is My Son's a Queer (But What Can You Do?)

When Rob was twelve he - with his Mum and Dad - attempted a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their Grandma

As Rob donned wigs and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their Dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy

Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction

Mum mistook Aladdin for Ursula

The costumes went awry

And Ariel's bubble gun didn't work properly

Nevertheless, Grandma had a nice time

My Son's a Queer (But What Can You Do?) is the joyous, chaotic, autobiographical story from actor, writer and social-media sensation Rob Madge as they set out to recreate that parade

And this time, nobody, but nobody, is gonna rain on it

This one-man show was first performed at London's Turbine Theatre in June 2021, directed by Luke Sheppard, with music by Pippa Cleary – and starring Rob Madge as Rob Madge, alongside hilarious home movies of the Madge family (plus Granny Grimble)

This edition features the complete text of the play, including links to and transcriptions of the video footage, colour photographs and extra bonus content from the RDM (Robert Dennis Madge) Productions Archive

It concludes with an afterword by Mum and Dad about the joys to be found in championing the creativity of children

And why playing Tinkerbell, with a smile, might be the best thing you can do for your kids

And for yourselves
