In a small country pub with a failing music system and sticky floors, Marc sits quietly as instructed. Adam, his partner, is telling Marc’s parents that their son is gay. The conversation is blunt, monstrous and painfully funny. It does not go well and Marc is left without parents to turn to. Perhaps that’s what Adam wanted.
A rehearsed reading of a solo work exploring coercive and controlling behaviour within a male gay relationship, Hold will invite post-show audience feedback to assist in further development.
Hold is being developed with support from Arts Council England.
