An intimate dramatic reading of real life stories that tell of being shy, gay and living in Leyton.

Performed by the actor and campaigner Jonathan Blake, who inspired the BAFTA-winning film Pride and Olivier Award nominated actor Paul Keating.

About

If you like Peter Kaye or Alan Bennet, you'll love these warm and funny stories. Come and hear them for free. There's a voluntary 'pay what you can' donation to charity and a friendly drink at the bar. Think 'Jackanory for adults'. The stories reveal what it's like to be shy, gay and living in Leyton - and everyone is welcome, that's the point. It's why we've teamed up with the mighty Leyton Orient Football Club to host this world premiere event. Book a ticket and these moving little stories will make you raise three things: a smile, a drink and a hankie.

Written by Rob Young

Read by the actor and campaigner Jonathan Blake, who inspired the BAFTA-winning film Pride and Olivier Award nominated actor Paul Keating.

"A fascinating playwright", The Times.

"Young has an unnatural way with small lethal details that tell entire stories", The Times.

All money raised by ticket sales will be split between the club’s own charity, Leyton Orient Trust and towards post-production costs for feature documentary ‘After 82’, which tells the stories of the first generation of HIV Survivors in the UK.

Please note: If you can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket and free up the space for another person. Check your confirmation email for instructions or click here.
