In 1985, in a London flat, old friends and lovers gather to celebrate new beginnings, yet their whole world is about to change…
Funny, sad and sweet, Kevin Elyot’s award-winning dark comedy play about the relationships of a group of gay men and their connections to the unseen yet magnetic Reg is a moving exploration of friendship, happiness and love, and their fragility in the shadow of the 1980’s AIDS crisis.
An evening of laughter, heartbreak and celebration, Elyot’s razor-sharp wit will be brought to life in a stunning, visual feast that captures the decadence, celebration and uncertainty of 1980’s London.
