An Old Queer's Guide to Whatever Part I & Twinkle


Robert Walsh's autobiographical tale about growing up in the 50s, 60s and 70s when being gay was illegal. Dig into how he met like minded people, where they met, how they survived AIDs & HIV and up to life now as an older gay man. Featuring 3 commissioned new original songs, funny and sad stories, and it's all true!

Robert Walsh stars in a revengers comedy chronicling a forgotten history and a dying art. Harold Thropp is an aging pantomime dame and as he prepares to perform as Widow Twankey, he looks back over his life and remonstrates on the modern world. We discover his traumatic past life and of a dark deed he is about to commit.
