Nick Mower, Sam Goodchild and Ben Kavanagh are to star in Above The Stag’s gripping world premiere The Convert this June.
Alix and Marcus have been brought to The Facility to be “corrected”. If their condition is cured they may leave and return to the society. But if they fail, they will be sent to the Other Place, away from their friends and family forever.
Failure is not an option, but in this confounding institution, where they only have each other, the greatest threat to their success is their own love.
With government U-turns at home and minorities rights questioned abroad, Ben Kavanagh’s dramatic, imaginative and epic play could not be more timely.
Conversion Therapy is put front and centre in this piece of theatre that portrays real techniques used against LGBTQ+ people, pitching nightmarish forces against unerasable, shining humanity. All at a time when real visibility and change is needed. Don’t miss it!
The Convert is at Above The Stag 8 June – 3 July 2022.
