Simon David: Virgin
Simon David is a multi-talented musician proficient in clarinet, saxophone, accordion and piano. He is also, unfortunately, a virgin and in his new show, he tells us all about it! While being in possession of an un-porked pie is not something most twenty one year-olds would shout about, Simon David knows that to stand out as a performer he must have a Unique Selling Point.
Introducing… Conleth Kane
Conleth Kane has an impressive number of strings to his bow! Enough to make the rest of us feel bad about sitting at home in the dark and binge-watching Stranger Things on Netflix. He’s an actor, a singer AND a dancer! He’s been on telly AND he’s been on the stage! He can do ballads AND he can do hi-NRG dance numbers. So naturally, Dylan Jones took him to The Vaults in Waterloo (totes edgy) for a chat. Conleth told him about his difficult upbringing in Northern Ireland, the treatment of gay men in the acting industry and most importantly, THE TIME HE HAD CHRISTMAS DINNER WITH PAMELA ANDERSON.

Sheer Art Attacks!
What makes gay art gay? What, exactly, separates Robert Mapplethorpe’s luscious anal portraits from Ruben’s bursting-at-the seams nudes? Why, sheer audacity and daring, darlings. Never, ever content to lie back and be stuffed, stultified and mounted for England, the gay imagination takes risks to die for.
In a slight diversion from their usual fun, camp, all-singing all-dancing productions, Above The Stag are playing host to a hard-hitting drama about the lives of two young boys living in Iran under Sharia rule.
