Davey has seen something he can never forget. Anita has been forced to flee her home. Tonight, they meet for the first time… and their lives will change forever.
Philip Ridley’s modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash in 2007. Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, it is now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime – and society’s need to crush ‘difference’ – ever written.
Praise for previous productions:
‘Shockingly good… Ridley’s best play… his writing is amongst the very sharpest in British theatre’
★★★★ Time Out
‘Blazing’ ★★★★ The Sunday Times
