The original book, by the late David Rees, broke new ground as a positive image of growing up gay and was published during the era of Margaret Thatcher's inflammatory anti-gay speeches. Rees's novel was debated in Parliament during the Section 28 debates, which resulted in the introduction of legislation making it illegal for schools to 'promote' or even talk about homosexuality. Many accused the book of 'glorifying' gay sex. Three decades later, it has been adapted for the stage by Kevin Kelly and directed by the award-winning Tim McArthur. It features some of the very best music from the era and a full cast of professional actors who will recreate the terror and exhilaration of discovering your true self and making your way in a hostile world as you search for true love.
