Forthcoming shows

7th April

Baylen Leonard is our guest presenter this week while Rosie is speaking at Edinburgh Science Festival.

He talks to Lincoln based performer and theatre maker Jon M Coleman as he rehearses his solo show How To Be A Man ahead of performances at Ovalhouse from 8th – 11th April. Through personal stories, interviews, self help books, social assumptions, famous quotes and more, he investigates the core values of being a man.

Andrea Walker, artistic director of 201 dance company, choreographs a fusion of contemporary and street dance. He tells us about If You Leave, which explores a relationship between two young men. The hip-hop piece is at the Blue Elephant Theatre from 16th – 18th April.

Laura Macdougall speaks to Canadian author Ann-Marie MacDonald about her latest novel, Adult Onset, in which she draws heavily from her own life. Set over the course of a week in the life of Mary Rose MacKinnon, a 48-year-old who apparently ‘has it all’ – a wife, two small children and a successful career as an author. Adult Onset takes a bold, unflinching look at parenthood, physical and emotional trauma, and how the scars of the past inform and affect the present.


14th April

Rosie chats to Colin Clews, author of the blog Gay in the 80s, ahead of an event taking place at the Bishopsgate Institute on 21st April. LGBT London in the 1980s – The Media and the ‘Loony Left’ sees Colin and fellow speaker Linda Bellos OBE, who was leader of Lambeth Council during the late 80s, discussing the experiences of gay people living in the UK in this decade.

Performance poet and writer Hannah Chutzpah tells us what she has in store for her appearance at Queer’Say at Tate Modern on 19th April. Her 2014 Edinburgh show Asking Nicely received a 5 star review from Three Weeks, a run during which her debut poetry pamphlet Alchemy, Treasure and Butterfly Wings was launched.

Erik Tomlin of London Gay Symphonic Winds pops in to play some live music and explains why the group, currently celebrating its 10th year, has decided to embrace all things geek with a host of sci-fi and game themes and costumes for their upcoming concert on 18th April at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate.


21st April

Rosie spoke over the phone to playwright Dylan Costello in December about his plans to put on a London run of his play The Glass Protégé. Now that the production opens at Park Theatre on 14th April, he joins us live in the studio with his director Matthew Gould. The Glass Protégé is set in 1940s Hollywood and features a romance between two actors.

Choreographer Joseph Mercier, of the company PanicLab, tells us about his new show R.I.O.T which comes to Stratford Circus on 30th April / 1st May and The Place on 27th May. R.I.O.T was inspired by the student protests in Westminster Square and involves four performers playing superheroes caught in a series of personal and political conflicts.

What are the issues concerning LGBT voters in the run up to the general election? David Robson, Chair of Wandsworth LGBT Forum, tells us about his forthcoming Vauxhall Question Time event taking place on 23th April with a panel including representatives of Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Green Parties. Writer and DJ Stewart Who also limbers up for his role as the Dimbleby figure overseeing proceedings on the night.


28th April

Savage Beauty, the first and largest retrospective of the work of the late designer Alexander McQueen ever presented in Europe, has been attracting rave reviews. Spanning his career from 1992 to 2010, McQueen’s designs are dramatically and spectacularly staged at the V&A in a style reminiscent of his provocative runway shows. So, the perfect reviewer for this visual feast? It’s suave stylish comedian David Mills of course!
