All the Bens

Ben likes Al, but Al says he’s straight. Al likes Henry, but not in that way. Besides, Al has other things to worry about. Like his girlfriend. And finding a job. And life.

Henry likes the number 7. But then everything changes as Ben chases Al, Henry states the obvious and they all visit A&E. And all the time Al tries to understand the world around him, his place in it and his ability to love.

All the Bens is a vibrant portrayal of loneliness, desire, sexuality and what happens when you meet your monster in the park.

Funny, sharp and brutal, this contemporary love story, first seen as part of Manchester’s 24:7 festival, contains some strong and explicit language. Suitable for 15+

All the Bens by Ian Townsend has been the recipient of the Manchester Theatre Award for Best Fringe, the Audience Favourite at the 24:7 festival, and the Vicky Allen Memorial Award presented by Equity.

All The Bens is presented by 1974 Productions.
