“The show is a celebration of survival against overwhelming odds. We have a LGBT history we are proud of.” – David Hoyle
Diamond is a bitter sweet journey into LGBT liberation from 1957 to current day events through the thrilling biography of David Hoyle. Weaving together intimate personal experience and public events, Diamond charts David’s rise from gay adolescent in Blackpool to famous Channel 4 Antidrag queer cult phenomenon.
An unforgiving piece of avant-garde theatre, Diamond navigates the transformation of gay counter-cultures, queer gender and sexuality, and British social attitudes, and will appeal to all with liberation in their heart.
Commissioned by Contact, supported by Arts Council, England. Produced by Jayne Compton for Switchflicker Productions.
