Above The Stag Theatre, London’s gay-focused theatre which recently moved to a new, permanent home in Vauxhall presents – A Hard Rain, a new play set in the days before the Stonewall riots erupted. It opens on 26 February. The play is set in and around a mafia-run gay bar in Greenwich Village, NYC, and is about “Ruby”, who is kicked out of the military after a year in Vietnam and winds up with no prospects, in drag, in the village. It’s in part about his journey towards activism. The play is also going to be published by the leading theatre publisher, Nick Hern Books, to coincide with the run.
