Homos, or Everyone in America by Jordan Seavey
7 August - 1 September
“um yes we’ve been a community since
since stonewall certainly
harvey milk probably
ancient greece maybe”
Equality is here – now what? In a supposedly ‘post-gay’ America on the brink of passing marriage equality, a first date at a New York bar starts two men on a fearless, funny and fragmented journey leading up to a historic moment of change.
Jordan Seavey’s raw and provocative portrait of a love story explodes attitudes, emotions and prejudices that sit at the heart of relationships across the world. This dazzling kaleidoscope of a play asks us all the question – are personal and political choices really all that different?
Award-winning director Josh Seymour returns to the Finborough Theatre following the sell-out cult hit Adding Machine: A Musical to direct the European premiere of Homos, or Everyone in America, a Critics’ Pick in the New York Times for its Off-Broadway première, named one of New York Magazine’s 10 Best Theatre Events of 2016 and The Advocate’s Top 10 New York Theater of 2016. The production is designed by Lee Newby, who recently designed the critically-acclaimed Olivier Award-winning Labour of Love starring Martin Freeman and Tamsin Greig at the Noël Coward Theatre.
The play stars Tyrone Huntley (the break out star of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2016, winner of the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Emerging Talent and named on the Evening Standard’s The Progress 1000 list of most influential Londoners last year), Harry McEntire ( The Last Kingdom and Episodes), Dan Krikler ( Unicorns, Almost) and Cash Holland .
“A daringly frank, funny and affecting new play. Seavey’s portrait of young gay New Yorkers negotiating the sometimes thorny nature of love and intimacy has an arresting, even bruising honesty.” New York Times
"This fascinating and fearless new play brims with universally recognisable emotions.” TheatreMania
“A blisteringly fine and hilarious play with devastatingly pointed intelligence.” New York Magazine
