Queer Counsel to get London premiere in Croydon



Preview by Jack Foley

THE London premiere of Queer Counsel, a new play by Nick Bamford, will open at The Warehouse Theatre Croydon from April 16 to May 9.

Directed by Rob Swinton, and presented by FOD Productions, the play centres around the debate surrounding gay clergy, which continues to tear the Anglican
Church apart.

Queer Counsel will explore the human cost of that debate, having been inspired by a true story.

It is described as a moving, sometimes funny and ultimately
heart-warming tale of redemption through human contact.

 

Gary is 29, gay and promiscuous, while John is a fundamentalist Christian, who regards homosexuality as an abomination.

John's son, Matthew, is 16 and
confused.

From totally polarised positions, Matthew's family and lover grapple with the devastating fallout of his sexual initiation.

As they piece together the truth and their shattered lives, all find themselves in uncharted waters and needing each other to find the way forward.

The play explores themes of not only parental but also sexual responsibility and looks at the sexual politics of the gay scene and the low esteem in which too many gay men hold themselves in a world where commitment is too often washed away by a torrent of casual sex.

The cast has yet to be announced.
