James Ley in association with Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, directed by Ros Philips

After a sell-out run at the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, Scotland’s 80s gay romantic comedy hit is back! And so are nostalgic bookseller Lewis and party boy Glen, in this funny, celebratory play about Scotland’s radical, lesbian, gay and feminist bookshop, that began in the cloakroom of Scotland’s first gay nightclub and became the beating heart of Edinburgh’s LGBT+ community.

***** “A Stunningly beautiful play” The Reviews Hub
**** “A play for our time that speaks volumes about cities and change” The Scotsman
**** “A thoroughly entertaining and important piece of LGBT social history.” The Stage
