music by Christopher Frost

directed by Robert McWhir

'Queereteria TV' is the all new post-apocalyptic musical theatre show starring Erasure singer Andy Bell as 'Torsten', a semi-immortal, genderfluid troubadour as one of a merry band of dysfunctional queers tasked with re-starting trash TV transmissions from Club Queereteria in a post-Armageddon near future!

Show reviews

"... this is by far one of the oddest shows I have ever seen. And it was brilliant for it ... No matter the subject matter, the songs remained engaging and hilarious through the entire show ... The small cast oozes with talent, delivering some of the most intelligent and impressive writing I’ve ever experienced ... All in all, if you want something completely out of the ordinary that’s going to push you as a viewer, Queereteria TV is a five-star must-see."

(James Cunningham-Curry - Gscene, April 2019)

 

"Ashton-Bullock, and Musical Director Christopher Frost, have crafted some genuinelybeautiful numbers, perhaps most notably ‘We Hadn’t Slept for Twenty Years’, a song full of pathos and longing."

(Archie Whyld - The Play's The Thing UK, April 2019)

 

"The songs ... as solo pieces for Bell or the entire ensemble, are among the most varied and captivating pieces that Chris Frost and Ashton-Bullock have yet composed together."

(Matt Smith - Clash, April 2019)

I have spent much of 2020 producing a live album of the 2019 stage show Queereteria TV for which I was musical director at the Above The Stag Theatre.
