The Peacock Theatre, Salamanca hosted our very first small-scale production. Written and performed by Andy Aisbett, Finding My Spot followed the ramblings of a self-described underwhelming gay man who can't seem to find his spot. Through his panicked dribbles, we discover the overwhelming pressure gay men endure in present day, and the past struggles and traumas that may interrupt their development. These insecurities and angry rants are loosely wrapped up in very obscure Harry Potter references, to keep his feels at bay.
"thank you for showing the community a slither of our experience, and thank you for showing us queers we're not the only ones"

The Minister is a new campy, political comedy by local playwright Andy Aisbett. We follow the journey of Cleo, a stubborn politically driven Drag Queen, Trace, a sassy genderqueer Drag Artist... and a nameless random guy. On an accidental night, they toss, turn, and twist the shape of this nameless human being as they try to make sense of what it is to be queer. All of this whilst designing a glamorous, piss-take musical election campaign.
"...strong political and social message that is still joyful and uplifting."
