Venue: New Wimbledon Theatre
TV’s Outlander star John Bell is making his London theatre debut in the revival of The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me by David Drake at the New Wimbledon Theatre.
This multi-award winning play ran for over a year Off-Broadway in New York, and was inspired by David Drake seeing a performance of Larry Kramer’s play The Normal Heart.
This heart-warming, coming of age story follows the life of a young actor – his call to gay pride and activism in New York during the onset of HIV/AIDS in the 80s. Broken up into a series of stories, the play abstractly documents a gay man’s journey of self-discovery. From the late-night club crawl to the buff-bunny gyms, from the threat of anti-gay violence to the place where condemnation, compromises and closets are a thing of the past, The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me exposes the sexual, spiritual, and political yearnings at the heart of gay America shared by a whole generation of gay men and women.
John Bell is an outstanding young actor best known for his film and TV work, including Outlander, The Hobbit and Wrath of the Titans.
This brand new production is from the team who produced the recent award-winning production of Martin Sherman’s Rose staring Dame Maureen Lipman, and is directed by Steven Dexter (Beautiful Thing, Loserville, Closer to Heaven, Pippin).
Performances run Thursday 3rd – Saturday 26th February 2022.Website & Booking
