CRUISE Play London

Duchess Theatre, London

This incredible new one-man play premiered to streaming audiences earlier this year and is now set to make its live stage debut this summer. It will be one of the first to open the West End! It’s 1988 in Soho and tonight should be Micheal Spencer’s last night on earth. If you enjoyed the wildly successful tv show It’s a Sin then Cruise will let you continue that celebration of life, love and survival in the gay community in the 80s. In 1984, Michael gets the news, he’s HIV positive. He’s given four years to live, at most. What do you do when your clock is literally ticking? Well, Michael and his partner Dave decide to sell the house, get rid of the car and spend it all partying and celebrating like there is no tomorrow. Two years on Dave dies and Michael steps up his hedonistic ways. Then on the 29th of February 1988, the last day on his ticking clock, Michael hits the streets of Soho wearing his favourite jacket and goes on a singing, dancing farewell tour. After saying goodbye to everyone and everything and putting all his affairs in order Michael promptly… survives. Micheal is one of the lucky gay men who has been given the gift of life; but what kind of life can he live now?
