Plot Synopsis

QUEERS is a series of eight, 20-minute monologues in response to the 50th anniversary of the UK's Sexual Offences Act, and act of Parliament that decriminalized homosexual acts in private between two men, both of whom had to have attained the age of 21. The stories in this series, all produced and directed by Mark Gatiss, include:

"The Man on the Platform": A young man returning from the trenches of the First World War recollects a love that dared not speak its name. Written by Mark Gatiss.

"A Grand Day Out": In 1994, as the government votes on lowering the age of male homosexual consent, 17-year-old Andrew comes to London for the first time -- with unexpected results. Written by Michael Dennis.

"More Anger": Actors can easily feel typecast. But it's 1987, and with AIDS hitting the headlines a promising new part looks like a game-changer for Phil. Written by Brian Fillis.

"Missing Alice": Alice and her husband share a secret, but with the publication of the Wolfenden Report in 1957 it may not need to be a secret anymore. Written by Jon Bradfield.

"I Miss the War": The 1967 Sexual Offences Act will revolutionize everything, won't it? Well, perhaps not as far as dapper gent Jackie is concerned. Written by Matthew Baldwin.

"Safest Spot in Town": As the Blitz hits London, Fredrick is grateful that he survived in a very unlikely place of refuge. Written by Keith Jarrett.

"The Perfect Gentleman": Bobby is a swaggering man about town. But Bobby has a secret. Can it survive when it really matters? Written by Jackie Clune.

"Something Borrowed": Steve, a groom-to-be, anxiously prepares his wedding speech. But now the big day is here, what has been won and what has been lost? Written by Gareth McLean.
