Adapted from the hit stage show and inspired by true events, Everybody's Talking About Jamie follows a Sheffield teenager who dreams of becoming a fierce and proud drag queen.

Jamie New (Max Harwood) dreams of life on stage. While his classmates plan their livelihoods after they leave school, Jamie contemplates his secret career ambition. His best friend Pritti (Lauren Patel) and his loving mum (Sarah Lancashire) shower him with endless support, while local drag legend Miss Loco Chanelle (Richard E. Grant) mentors him toward his debut stage performance.

But Jamie also has to contend with an unsupportive father (Ralph Ineson), an uninspired careers advisor (Sharon Horgan), and some ignorant school kids who attempt to rain on his sensational parade. In rousing and colourful musical numbers, Jamie and his community inspire one another to overcome prejudice, be more accepting, and to step out of the darkness into the spotlight.

The 9pm screening on Fri 17 Sep will include an exclusive introduction from Belfast Queen, Sabrina Bewitched, winner of Op Tricks, Trudy Drag Race and Gays Got Talent.

The 7.45pm screening on Wed 22 Sep will feature a post-screening Q&A with co-writer Dan Gillespie Sells. This screening is presented in partnership with Outburst Queer Arts Festival, with Ruth McCarthy leading the Q&A.
