Vault Theatre presents Dumbledore Is So Gay

Dumbledore Is So Gay is a witty, poignant and contemporary coming-of-age drama for the naughties. Written by Robert Holtom (The Cluedo Club Killings, The Quest) and directed by Tom Wright (Undetectable, My Dad’s Gap Year).

It ain’t easy being Jack. He hates French, he got sorted into Hufflepuff on the official online quiz and he’s in love with his best friend Ollie. But dodging bullies, keeping secrets and trying to get the man is too much for Jack to take. So he pulls out his trusty Time Turner and does it all over again. Maybe this time he’ll get into Gryffindor.

For those who love fantasy and those who don’t, for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies, and for anyone who loves a good laugh and maybe a little cry. Join Jack as he tries to be true to himself in a world so full of prejudice and indifference.
