Posted Filed under

A short trailer for new Mark Gatiss project Queers features a whole host of acting talent.

The Radio Times has just given us our first look at the new BBC4 monologue series Queers. Directed and curated by Mark Gatiss, the show will be comprised of a series of monologues that will seek to chart 100+ years of gay history in the UK from the seats, stools, and stalls of one pub.

An interesting pretty interesting range of actors will each deliver a 15 minute monologue as part of the run, that will mark the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK. Indeed, the promo showcases the performances of Ben Wishaw (Spectre), Russell Tovey (Doctor Who, Being Human), Rebecca Front (War & Peace, Humans), Alan Cumming (X-Men, The Good Wife) and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones, Hetty Feather). Also part of the cast will be Kadiff Kirwan (Black Mirror), Ian Gelder (Game of Thrones) and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk).

You can see the trailer over at the Radio Times site.
