Only thing standing in her way is Joan – she’s hellbent on seizing the means of production and instigating a full-blown revolution on the streets off Dundee…

Freddie is a gay man, but not a gay novelist. He has been very clear about this distinction throughout his career. Due to rising public criticism that his stories are “problematic”, Freddie’s publisher tasks him with hiring a young assistant and sensitivity reader to keep him ‘in check’. The unlikely candidate is Ben: an aspiring novelist and outspoken queer man, who pushes Freddie to interrogate what it means to be writing and living truthfully. This tumultuous partnership invites Ben and Freddie to address their beliefs and biases as two very different homosexual men, from two very different generations. The result is a dynamic battle of wits played out in this exciting 2-hander thriller.
Directed by Rep Ensemble’s Emily Winter and featuring previous Rep Graduate Scheme actor Bailey Newsome alongside Barrie Hunter.
Writer Aodhan Gallacher
Director Emily Winter
