The MP, Aunty Mandy & Me
About The MP, Aunty Mandy & Me
Emmerson & Ward Productions and We Are Survivors in association with Curve present a bittersweet tale of political campaigns, sexual consent and steam trains.
Dom wants more than anything else to be an #instagay #influencer but it’s tough when no one likes your posts, you can’t find a bloke who shares your love of trains and you live with your MDMA popping, 'Simply Red' loving, Mum... in a small northern UK village, five miles from the nearest gay. Then one day, a chance encounter with his local MP turns everything upside down.
‘The MP, Aunty Mandy & Me’ explores consent, coercion and grooming within the gay male community with biting humour and contemporary social commentary.
From the author of IDGTF hits 'Gypsy Queen' and 'Away From Home'. Winner of an IDGTF Bursary 2022.
