Fifty thousand genders, vegan sausage rolls, a transgender attacked in a toilet… Aren’t people tired of all this whinging?”
A dark comedy. When Lin becomes the victim of a transphobic hate crime, a viral video propels “them” to fame – for all the wrong reasons. Will the gay agenda finally succeed, or is it all just woke, lefty bollocks? Following their pandemic-themed webseries We Live Inside, Yellow Mug Theatre returns to the fringe with The Gay Train – a new play from queer writers Ray Stafford and Andrew Lake. Corporate rainbow flags and empty gestures clash with the violent reality of real bigotry in a furious, offensive ode to weekday morning TV.
Previous praise for Yellow Mug: “Every once in a while… something completely different comes along. Something which stands out and alone, unafraid to be counted. It’s compelling, interesting, and most importantly, original.” – Reviewer Number 9, for We Live Inside.
