Production images have been released for Jack Holden’s Cruise, which has its world premiere at the Duchess Theatre. The show plays at the London venue until 13 June.#
Written and performed by Holden, this bold, one-man show features incredible live music, and is one of the first plays to open in the West End following its closure in March 2020. It marks his debut as a playwright, as well as the West End debut for theatre producers Katy Lipson and Lambert Jackson.
An urgent, moving and inspirational new play with live music and spoken word, Cruise brings to life 1980’s Soho and is a celebration of queer culture; a kaleidoscopic musical and spoken word tribute to the veterans of the AIDs crisis.
Based on true stories Holden was told whilst volunteering for Switchboard, the LGBTQ+ Listening Service, this new play, directed by Bronagh Lagan, shines a light on a generation devastated by HIV and AIDs.
The show features an uplifting 80s electronic soundtrack featuring classic anthems as well as original new music performed live by The Little Unsaid’s John Elliott.
