The Olivier Award-nominated play “My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do)” will hold industry presentations in New York on May 23 and 24.

The one-person show stars writer and performer Rob Madge in a coming-of-age story as they navigate their identity as a queer person with the support of their family.

Directed by Luke Sheppard (who is currently represented on Broadway with the jukebox musical “& Juliet”), “My Son’s a Queer” will feature songs by Pippa Cleary.

The work has previously been produced at London’s Turbine Theatre and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival — both of which were sold-out engagements. It then debuted on the West End at the Garrick Theatre in the fall of 2022 and returned to the West End at the Ambassadors Theatre in January 2023. “My Son’s a Queer” earned a 2023 Olivier nomination for best entertainment or comedy play.

The May industry presentations are hosted by Tom Smedes, Heather Shields and Peter Stern, by arrangement with Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor Mills.
