Theatrical ‘Gay Generations’ Double Bill, and a Special Gala Night with Peter Tatchell


White Bear Theatre, Kennington

Tuesday 24th August – Saturday 28th August 2021

The White Bear Theatre in Kennington presents a summer double bill of plays by Michael McManus, the writer of West End smash hit ‘Maggie & Ted’, and by celebrated stand-up comedian, writer, actor and broadcaster Charlie Ross MacKenzie.

Directed by Bryan Hodgson and Michael McManus

GAY GENERATIONS takes a look at life, love and loss, for gay men from different generations, and is being staged to support actors and new writing.

There will also be a Celebrity Fundraising Gala Night on Friday 27th August at 7:00pm with Special Guest of Honour Peter Tatchell, who will take part in a post-show Q&A alongside the writers and directors of the two plays.  The fundraising will ensure the actors are paid fairly for their work, and the evening will include a drinks reception and a free raffle with some knockout special prizes.


 portrays the differences of perspective, the insecurities and the simple misunderstandings – sometimes heart-breaking, usually hilarious – between gay men who grew up in different eras.

“A Certain Term” by Michael McManus
Every autumn Graham hosts a special party for his friends, to celebrate their survival and to commemorate those who have been lost. Usually, it’s much the same every year, but not this year. No, this year is going to be very different. This year he has unexpected guests – and his life is going to change forever.

Starring: Daniel Cornish, Dickon Farmar & Ed O’Connor. Directed by Bryan Hodgson.

“I F________n Love You” by Charlie Ross MacKenzie
Consigned to sleeping on the sofa bed, Adrian and Simon are having a rough night’s sleep. An uncomfortable night leads to some uncomfortable conversations, and a probable broken toe!

Starring: Brandon Gale and Charlie Ross MacKenzie. Directed by Michael McManus.
