Background


Rory Thomas-Howes' A Partnership, directed by Josh Tucker and starring two LGBTQ+ performers, is a real-time comedy-drama examining internalised homophobia.


Following its multiple 5-star run at Edinburgh Fringe 2019, where it won the 'Best Fringe Debut' award from Theatre Weekly, featured on The List's 'Top 10 LGBTQ+ Shows' and was shortlisted for the Sit-Up Award, this 'biting, intuitive, engaging two-hander' (The Stage) addresses the mundane, morose and magnificent aspects of love between two men.


Synopsis


This tragi-comic play follows Ally (Ben Hadfield) and Zach (Rory Thomas-Howes) in real time - the hour before Ally's 30th birthday - finally confronting the issues and lies in their five-year relationship.


Zach's internalised homophobia highlights the strain modern gay men are under to conform to society's ideal relationship, and the pitfalls of trying to be normal.


A non-stop conversation with no scene breaks, other characters or time-jumps, A Partnership is a tribute to the importance of honesty in any relationship.
