'The show is a celebration of survival against overwhelming odds. We have a LGBT history we are proud of.'
David Hoyle

Diamond is a bitter sweet journey into LGBT liberation from 1957 to current day events through the thrilling biography of David Hoyle. Weaving together intimate personal experience and public events Diamond charts David’s rise from gay adolescent in Blackpool, to famous Channel 4 Anti-drag queer cult phenomenon.

Reclaiming historical moments and reflecting on the lives of prominent gay figures such as Alan Turing, and more recent LGBT political activists, Diamond revisits this challenging history and on-going struggle for equality.

An unforgiving piece of avant-garde theatre, Diamond navigates the transformation of gay counter-cultures, queer gender and sexuality, and British social attitudes, and will appeal to all with liberation in their heart.

With special guests.
