A Queer Season In The West End: Boy Out The City and Bloody Elle

Boy Out The City & Bloody Elle
Wednesday 27 September 2023 to Saturday 30 September 2023
Venue: Lyric Theatre

Paul Taylor Mills Presents A Queer Season In The West End this September 2023, with a double-bill of two new queer shows.

Playing the Lyric Theatre in London from 27 to 30 September 2023, the queer season will see Boy Out The City and Bloody Elle take the West End by storm.

Both have just been packing in audiences and delighting critics at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, so don’t miss this exclusive chance to see these brilliant new queer works.

Boy Out The City

Created out of writing from his own private journals, Declan Bennett (Moulin Rouge! – Broadway, Jesus Christ Superstar) brings Boy Out The City to London.

In the show he reflects on surviving the streets of Coventry in a NAF NAF jacket, discovering the Gay scene in 90’s Soho, and confronting his Catholic school days.

After moving out of London to wait out the final months of the pandemic initially with his boyfriend, Declan unexpectedly finds himself alone in the Oxfordshire countryside. In his isolation, he is forced to face the demons of his past on a messy journey through the turbulent world of toxic masculinity, homophobia, and men’s mental health. From the lonely aisles of Hobbycraft to the bright lights of New York City, this is the story of a man in desperate search of identity when confronted with sudden unexpected solitude.

A raw and humorous autobiographical play exploring toxic masculinity, homophobia, and mental health.

Bloody Elle: A Gig Musical

Bloody Elle is a one-woman, semi-autobiographical gig musical, from Lauryn Redding. Featuring original music created live on stage, it’s a funny, poetic, and epic exploration of love, class, shame, and beauty in all its complexities. It’s the coming of age and coming out story of Elle; a young, working-class girl from the north of England.

Elle meets Eve. Her eyes are green like guacamole, she has posh-hair and a freckle on her chin and when she touches Elle’s arm…the world spins off its axis. This loud, proud love story is heart-warmingly honest and belly-achingly funny.

Stuffed full of those stomach-flipping-time-stopping moments that everyone will recognise. Bloody Elle is a gig musical full of searing original music performed live on stage.
