Due to popular demand, Rob Madge's critically acclaimed solo show, My Son's a Queer (But What Can You Do?) will run in the West End for two additional weeks. Originally set to close on 18 March, the show will now run at the Ambassadors Theatre through 1 April.

Madge revisits childhood videos of them putting on a Disney parade, which they posted online in 2020, becoming a viral success. In My Son's a Queer, Madge recreates these videos and celebrates their parents' support as they raised a queer child.

Madge premiered the show at the Turbine Theatre in 2021, and they then performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the West End's Garrick Theatre in 2022. A four-star London Theatre review of the Garrick production called it "a 75-minute celebration of being your best and truest self."
