Homos, or Everyone in America
Finborough Theatre, London
From Tue 7 Aug 2018 to Sat 1 Sep 2018
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 play Homos, or Everyone in America is a raw and provocative portrait of a love story, exploding 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?
Homos, or Everyone in America won numerous awards on its premiere Off-Broadway in 2016, and received its European premiere at the Finborough Theatre, London, in 2018.
