Giant Cherry Productions in association with Park Theatre present the UK Premiere
The Glass Protégé
by Dylan Costello
_Hollywood 1949. A time when the movies were king and the movie stars merely pawns for the studio bosses.
A time when passion was lauded but sex never discussed. So when young British actor, Patrick Glass, embarks on a scandalous homosexual love affair with his famous co-star, he starts to feel the full force of the studio's career-destroying muscle. Forty years later, as the truths of the past are uncovered, the true consequences of this 'unacceptable' romance come to light.
The Glass Protégé comes to the Park Theatre, fresh from a 6 week run in Chicago. The show originally ran in London in 2010 under its original title of Secret Boulevard for which it received three nominations in the 2011 Off West End Awards (Offies).
Please Note: Over 16s only. Contains strong language and scenes of full frontal male nudity.
Registration/membership does not necessarily include drinks and canapes, we rely on the venues to sponsor this in exchange of considerable publicity to our Network worth several thousand of pounds, we try to support venues owned and managed by LGBT people)
