Rob Madge

Rob Madge is to release a cast recording of their show My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?)

The hit autobiographical solo show first premiered at London’s Turbine Theatre earlier this year and will head to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August.


Taking to social media, Madge has announced a cast recording featuring musical numbers from the show will be released next month alongside the Edinburgh run.

They tweeted: “Very excited to be able to say that we’re releasing a cast recording of My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) – coming in August on Spotify and Apple Music.”

An exact release date is to be announced.

When Rob was twelve, they attempted a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their Grandma. As Rob donned wigs and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their Dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy. Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction. Mum mistook Aladdin for Ursula. The costumes went awry. Grandma had a nice time, though.

My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?) is the joyous autobiographical story of social-media sensation Rob Madge as they set out to recreate that parade – and this time, nobody, no, nobody is gonna rain on it.

Songs from the show have lyrics by Madge with music and additional lyrics by Pippa Cleary. Orchestrations are by Simon Nathan.

My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) will run at Underbelly George Square from 4 – 29 August.
