The Backroom archiveCharlie, in the ultimate gesture of rebellion, becomes Sebastian, moving from new boy to top dog, breaking all the rules along the way. Gary, the madam is blowing a celebrity closeted footballer, and ex-squaddie Paul is doing the job to pay his child support. A tongue in cheek evening of pretentious-free laughs, fights, sex-tips and bullshit that surrounds and consumes them. From G-A-Y obsessed camp queens to ultra-macho Muscle-Marys, our backroom offers something for everyone!
