February is LGBTQ+ history month, and FutureQueer is a subversive look at an imagined queer future. Set around the iconic Donna Summer queer anthem I Feel Love, the show is coming to the newly created Cabaret space in King’s Head Theatre. Hard to categorise, the show is part theatre, stand-up comedy, DIY queer lecture and pop-culture commentary.

Alexis Gregory is in Futurequeer at The Kings Head Theatre in London.

Alexis Gregory’s work appeals to cross-generational audiences, opening up new conversations. Gregory, a critically acclaimed writer and performer, presents a show that can only be described as funny, hard-hitting, and provocative. As ever with Gregory’s work, it will also be camp as f*ck. The plot has Voguing and lip-syncing as categories in the Olympics; there is a statue of George Michael on Hampstead Heath, and Starbucks own Pride!

FutureQueer follows up on the success of Riot Act, which focused on LGBTQ+ pasts and is now looking to an imagined LGBT future. The moving, irreverent, and outrageously funny FutureQueer is part speculative queer excavation, part pop culture commentary, and part meditation on disco music as a metaphor for queer survival. The show touches on subjects as wide-ranging as unborn queer babies, drag avatars, and LGBTQ+ future migration
