Olivier Award winner Mark Gatiss co-stars with Ian Hallard in The Boys In The Band, the story of a New York party at which the mood swings wildly out of hand.
Gatiss plays Harold, a self-avowed ‘pock-marked, Jew fairy’ who, as nine men gather in a New York apartment for his birthday celebration, receives a surprise gift: an attractive male hustler.
Meanwhile, party host Michael (Hallard) gets an unexpected – and unwanted – surprise of his own, in the shape of a figure from his past. And as the drink and dope consumptions augments and fuels events, an evening of initial hilarity threatens to become one of utter heart-break.
Reviving Mart Crowley’s seminal piece, which premiered just months before the Stonewall riots, The Boys In The Band is directed by Adam Penford, amongst whose recent credits include A Small Family Business and One Man, Two Guvnors (Revival Director for UK Tour, Broadway & West End).
Recommended for ages 14+.
