Gay Generations is set to open at The White Bear Theatre in Kennington. The exciting double bill of short one-act plays about life, love and loss amongst gay men from different generations opens on Tuesday 24th March – Saturday 28th March and features a stellar cast: Robert Sladden; Stephen Omer; Lewis Chandler; James Lavender and James King.
Written by Michael McManus, best known for his political plays An Honourable Man and Maggie and Ted, and Charlie Ross MacKenzie, a well-known stand-up comedian, writer and broadcaster, it portrays the disparities of perspective, the insecurities and the simple misunderstandings from men who grew up in different eras.
Heart-breaking and often hilarious, Gay Generations is perceptive, witty and brilliantly written. There will be a special Gala Night performance on Friday 27th March with a post show Q&A. Peter Tatchell who is best known as a human rights campaigner for democracy, LGBTI freedom and global justice is special guest. The evening will help raise funds to ensure the actors are properly paid, in line with the Equity Fringe Agreement.
Gay Generations is directed by Matthew Parker (a freelance theatre director and former Artistic Director of The Hope Theatre) and Amanda Bailey (Come and Go and Stalin’s Women at the Stephen Joseph Theatre; The Rivals; Macbeth; Little Shop of Horrors and Blood Wedding).
Gay Generations is at The White Bear Theatre Kennington 24th to 28th March. Tickets are on sale here.
