The Mp, Aunty Mandy & Me
by Rob Ward
A bittersweet tale of political campaigns, sexual consent and steam trains.
Meet Dom. He wants more than anything else to be an #instagay #influencer but it’s tough when no one likes your posts, you can’t find a bloke who shares your love of trains and you live with your MDMA popping, Simply Red loving mum in a small northern village five miles from the nearest gay. He’d love a fabulous life with the A-Gays in the city, but his social anxiety prevents this from being a reality. It’s all a bit of an effort.
Then one day, a chance encounter with his local MP turns everything upside down. But in pursuit of the life he thinks he wants; just how much does Dom have to give up?
The Mp, Aunty Mandy & Me has toured the UK and in 2023 played a full run at the Kings Head Theatre, London
