The Way Old Friends Do

A new comedy about devotion, desire and dancing queens.

In 1988, two school friends tentatively come out to one another: one as gay, the other as an ABBA fan. When they meet again years later, they decide to form the world’s first ABBA tribute band - in drag! But can their friendship survive the tribulations of life on the road?

Simultaneously tender and funny, this heartfelt story will appeal to anyone who understands how it feels to be a fan.

    Didn't know what to expect but we loved it. Fantastic cast and kept us gripped from beginning to end as was witty, moving and absolutely engaging. BRAVO ! everyone it was brilliant.

    Brilliant show which works on many layers and there are many hidden away in its fantastic script, wonderful staging and superb performances. As a pretty hardcore fan, I felt wonderfully served by the subtle references and in jokes but it works equally well for anyone who barely knows the group. It may focus on ABBA but it’s a brilliant observation of all fandoms but ultimately boils down to the importance of friendship. I laughed, cried and fought every temptation to sing along!
