Originally performed in Manchester, Losing the Plot is a new Queer Jukebox Musical comedy featuring pop hits from the 70s and 80s! We follow Eric Little, a struggling writer, as he attempts to create the best new musical of this generation! But he can’t do it alone… With the help of an unlikely (but lovable) group of "writers", relationships crumble and reignite while they attempt to write something – anything! As they ask: 'Does anyone have any ideas?' 'An exuberant, zestful, and hugely entertaining show!' *** (Number9Reviews.blogspot.com).

Brilliantly funny, great song choice I was singing along with 80's hits. A must see for writers and actors and anyone involved in the creative process. Well worth getting up for.

What a fantastic new musical! Myself and my gran attended this morning’s show and it was well worth it. We thought the cast were all incredibly talented, the characters were amazing and the show had a great story line. All the songs were good fun and fit in so well! They deserved a much bigger audience - all the best to them on the rest of the run!

A great storyline, brilliant classic song choices, unmistakable chemistry, strong, well balanced and directed cast plus an amazing choreo to boot.
