Beginning in Berlin in 1934, the play follows Max as he and his lover Rudy find their hedonistic lifestyle suddenly and unexpectedly turned upside-down under the Nazi regime. While this play highlights the little-told story of the persecution of gay people by the Nazis, it has the ability to transcend the horrors of the holocaust and celebrate dignity, courage, identity and love under the harshest of conditions. The play is a love story against all odds that aims to provide a powerful and memorable experience.

This play contains challenging, adult themes, scenes of a sexual nature and
some violence. Not suitable for under-16s.
