Green Carnation Company present
Wednesday 12 – Wednesday 19 October 2022.
A scorching psychological thriller by Philip Ridley.
…Davey has seen something he can never forget. Anita is haunted by grief and shame. They have never met. Tonight their paths will collide with devastating consequences.
Thrilling, heart-breaking, and at times darkly humourous, Philip Ridley’s powerful play examines hate crime, loss, prejudice and sexuality in this tense game of cat and mouse set in London’s East End.
“Ridley’s best play” Time Out
This modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in 2000, and a West End smash in 2007 & 2018. A multi-award winning playwright, Philip Ridley’s plays have become synonymous with some of the greatest pieces of LGBTQ+ theatre in the last century.
Green Carnation Theatre return to Hope Mill Theatre after their sell-out production of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s ‘The Pride’ and tour of Kevin Elyot’s ‘My Night with Reg’ and collaborations with Hive North and Hope Mill Theatre’s TurnOnFest. Telling Queer Stories through Quality Theatre, this dynamic theatre company is fast developing a reputation for gripping, high-quality theatre.
