Grindr: The Opera puts the most notorious gay hook-up app into the exaggerated world of opera once more as it returns to the Above The Stag Theatre in January.

After an airing earlier this year, Grindr: The Opera is set to return to the Above the Stag theatre to provide some probably much needed post-festive cheer this new year.

The show will run from 17 January to 16 February 2019.

In its earlier incarnation, the musical managed to garner a clutch of 5 Offie Award Nominations, including best musical production.

Reviewing the show for The Stage, Paul Vale said "... what Grindr: The Opera lacks in complexity it more than makes up for in humour."

Sounds like there may be bags of fun in it then!

Written by Erik Ransom and directed by Andrew Beckett, the show has a running time of around 2 hours and casting is yet to be announced.

You can still grab tickets right away though - just in case you manage to use up all your plastic cash before youletide!
