As part of the King's Head's Queer Season '17, Nathan Evans presents the premiere of his comedy-drama set in a suburban care home, into which a gentleman called Joan lands like an colourful, combustible cocktail. A veteran of Gay Lib and no stranger to conflict, Joan dons battle dress, seeking an ally in the young, gay but disappointingly conventional care assistant Craig for his attempt to overturn the heteronormativity of the care system. Then, in this most unlikely of settings, at this most unlikely time of life, Joan is offered love and acceptance by another gentleman resident A bittersweet look at some of the challenges facing an ageing LGBT population.
