David Hoyle: Diamond
Soho Theatre By Arrangement With Switchflicker And Tim Whitehead Presents
DAVID HOYLE: DIAMOND
Diamond explores LGBT history spanning the 60-year period from 1957 to 2017 through the personal biography of David Hoyle. Weaving together intimate personal accounts and landmark events Diamond charts David’s rise from gay adolescent in Blackpool in the north of England, to famous Channel 4 anti-drag queen cult phenomena.
Revisiting landmark events such as the Wolfenden Report, the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality, the repeal of Section 28 and the lives of prominent gay figures such as Alan Turing, and more recent LGBT political activists, Diamond offers moments of reflection and insights into this history and on-going struggle for equality.
“The show is a celebration of survival against overwhelming odds. We have a LGBT history we are proud of.” – David Hoyle
Diamond is a piece of theatre that navigates counter-cultures, queer gender and sexuality, and British attitudes, and will appeal to all with liberation in their heart.
