Pop a question inside a celebrity. This time, everyone’s favourite gay dramaturgue, Jonathan Harvey!

Oh, Jay!

He is an Oscar Wilde for our generation (without the marriage and kids bit); is the creator of the best coming out story ever (that would be Beautiful Thing); had the jump on Will & Grace with Gimme Gimme Gimme and regularly writes the very best episodes of Coronation Street (you can always tell when it’s him).

Now, he’s back in London’s glittering off-West End with a new gay play Canary, which is only, like, one of our favourite colours! Psyche!

It starts at Hampstead Theatre on Wednesday (buy tickets here, why don’t you? They’re only £15!) and in celebration/anticipation/constipation, Jay (a whizz in the kitchen AND the bedroom – we have on the best authority!) has decided to lay himself open to your probings.

Your stickiest questions over the jump, if you are that way inclined. And even if you aren’t!…

  1. How about writing something in conjunction with Russell T Davies? It could be the gayest gay thing on gay TV. Do you like the stuff he writes?

  4. Beautiful Thing really is a beautiful thing. What’s the most beautiful thing in your life? Keep it clean.

  5. Was Gimme Gimme Gimme successful in America at all? It was so different to Will & Grace I wonder if anyone would have got it there. Big fan of your work, btw.

  7. The world would absolutely love a ten years later follow up one-off special return to Tom and Linda. It HAS to happen. We need Kathy and James back one last time. Would you do it if you could get them back? If not, why not?

  8. Its been many a year since I’ve entered a house and not gone ‘No net curtains? Dead common.’ Do you find this flattering or do you think ‘Bitch stole my joke’?

  13. In your fantabulous career you’ve created at least three iconic gay men: Ste/Jamie, Tom and more recently lovely wee Simon. What has been the biggest change in attitudes towards gay men that you’ve noticed as the UK has moved from Beautiful People to Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and now on to Beautiful People?

  15. In the Mama Cass Bio by her daughter she mentions a dinner attended by her mother, Richard and Karen Carpenter. Richard and Cass then drag raced in his ferrari. Imagine Mama Cass marrying Richard and then forming a trio with Miss Karen. Please write the movie.
