Once upon a time, Wilfred and their exclusive clique of ‘unconventional’ friends could often be found absorbed in a whirlwind of fabulously indulgent evenings across London’s West End – but now, they are trapped in present day London, unwilling to move on from past mistakes, and quite literally trapped outside of Heaven (in Charing Cross, that is).
As they take a rather theatrical wander through their memories one last time accompanied by an eccentric old mentor, they reflect on their extraordinary experiences of navigating the 1930s queer scene in London and beyond, and the people, places and stories that once made them who they are.
THE UNCONVENTIONALS is an intimate, joyous musical comedy inspired by the true stories of the queer friends who loved, lived and partied across 1930s London.
