The Way Old Friends Do in London

A new comedy about devotion, desire and dancing queens.

In the late 1980s, two school friends from Birmingham tentatively come out to one another: one as gay, the other as an ABBA fan. Nearly thirty years later, a chance meeting sets them on an exciting new path, and they decide to form the world’s first ABBA tribute band – in drag. But can their friendship survive the tribulations of a life on the road; one full of platform boots, fake beards and a distractingly attractive stranger?

Tender and laugh-out-loud funny in equal measures, this heartfelt story will appeal to anyone who understands how it feels to be a fan: of ABBA or of anyone.

The Way Old Friends Do is written by Ian Hallard (The Boys in the Band, Park Theatre and Scenes From An Execution; National Theatre), and directed by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Dracula, Doctor Who, The League of Gentlemen).

Review: THE WAY OLD FRIENDS DO at Park Theatre

by Stuart King | Saturday, March 18 2023, 09:37

Park Theatre once again acts as a showcase for a wonderfully uplifting frolic — this time sporting platform shoes, blue eye shadow and fake beards — brought to you courtesy of the husband and husband team of Ian Hallard and Mark Gatiss.
