The Grey Liberation Front
A gentleman called Joan lands in a subdued, suburban care home like a colourful, combustible cocktail. A veteran of Gay Lib, he dons battle dress and seeks an ally in the young, gay but disappointingly conventional care assistant Craig for his assault on the heteronormativity of the care system. Then, in this most unlikely of settings, Joan is offered love by a gentleman called Jim… This bittersweet comedy explores issues surrounding care and LGBT elders.
It premiered at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, London on 17 October 2018, presented by 89th Productions as part of And What? Queer. Arts. Festival.
“Side-splittingly funny and achingly romantic. A play about ageing disgracefully that’s ferociously full of life.”—RIKKI BEADLE-BLAIR
