Emmerson & Ward Productions and Curve present

The MP, Aunty Mandy and Me

-

Emmerson & Ward Productions and Curve present a bittersweet tale of political campaigns, sexual consent and steam trains.

Meet Dom. He 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 village five miles from the nearest gay. He’d love a fabulous life with the A-Gays in the city, but his social anxiety prevents this from being a reality. It’s all a bit of an effort. 

Then one day, a chance encounter with his local MP turns everything upside down. But in pursuit of the life he thinks he wants; just how much does Dom have to give up?

The MP, Aunty Mandy & Me explores consent, coercion and grooming within the gay male community with biting humour and contemporary social commentary. It is presented in association with Survivors; a Manchester based charity for survivors of male sexual abuse.
