Old Boyfriends

Adrian, a child of the 60s and veteran of love’s ups and downs, bids a poignant farewell to his old flames and memories as he embarks on a journey to France, seeking one last chance at love amidst the melodies of his life’s soundtrack in ‘Old Boyfriends’.

Old Boyfriends is a heartfelt musical that takes audiences on a journey through the intertwined lives of a close-knit group of friends born in the vibrant 1960s. Against the evolving backdrop of music history, the story unfolds through a tapestry of poignant and humorous vignettes. From the innocent days of variety shows and classic musicals to the revolutionary sounds of pop, soul, disco, and punk in the tumultuous 1970s, each character’s personal odyssey is inseparable from the soundtrack that defines their generation.

Through melodies ranging from show tunes and MOR ballads to folk, country, jazz, and disco, the characters’ reminiscences of past loves and losses are brought vividly to life. The music serves not only as a backdrop but as a poignant reminder of the times they lived through and the people they once were. As they navigate the complexities of friendship, love, and personal growth, “Old Boyfriends” celebrates the enduring power of music to shape memories and connect us to our shared human experiences.

Old Boyfriends is in workshop with a view to staging a full production in 2025.
