tell me straight
15th to 26th February | £14.50 - £17.50
Dani is done with Him and all his bullsh*t! He needs to ‘fix up and get him some rainbow flag waving D’. She’s heard it all – Soldiers. Chefs. Osama (not that one). He’s been through the lot of them and they’ve got one thing in common: they’re all straight.
Him has a plan:
NO FAST FOOD
But like buses…
‘It’s like I’m a beacon. Some gay lighthouse on the curious shoreline and these straights squint from the distant sea and drift towards me.’
Bradshaw’s tell me straight is an explosive one-act play which follows Him trying to break this cycle. Will Him finally listen to Dani, or constantly get sucked in by the straightest of dicksand?
