Homos, or Everyone in America

By Jordan Seavey

Paperback £10.99£8.79

EPUB £9.99£7.99

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.

since stonewall certainly

Press Quotes

'Powerfully combines smart wit and smarting pain… these are as closely, delicately realised individuals as you could imagine... intellect comes to chime with emotion in a story told with a deep level of engagement and often unflinching intimacy'

The Arts Desk

'A brilliantly provocative modern-day romance'

Time Out

'A poignant, intimate portrait of modern gay life… a valuable reminder that hearts and minds – not just the law – need to change for equality to be achieved'

The Stage

'A play that everyone should see'

The Reviews Hub

'There's huge ambition in Jordan Seavey's epic American odyssey… even though it focuses in on one couple, it could be seen as an overarching depiction of love, life, homosexuality and relationships in the noughties… there is truth in the piece about what it means to be gay in modern America – or anywhere really – and the characters are realistically human'

WhatsOnStage

'A daringly frank, funny and affecting new play. Seavey’s portrait of young gay New Yorkers negotiating the sometimes thorny nature of love and intimacy has an arresting, even bruising honesty'

New York Times

'A blisteringly fine and hilarious play with devastatingly pointed intelligence'
