Synopsis


"It's unseen.


No one's telling the stories.


You don't see us on the streets because saunas and Grindr mean that gay men don't have to be homeless in the traditional sense.


It's all hidden."


Did you know there is a LGBTQ+ homelessness crisis?


Working together with young LGBTQ+ ex/homeless people in London, Vicky Moran's new play shines a light on a forgotten generation of homeless youth.


Combining real stories, verbatim interview clips and an original score, No Sweat reveals stories from within the world of gay saunas - a common place for young homeless people to seek accommodation.


In a world where stability is a second from slipping through your fingers, austerity combined with prejudice sees young people putting themselves at risk all too often.


We invite you inside our very own sauna.


Here you'll meet Tristan, Alf and Charlie who will show you the ropes when it comes to survival.


But how long can they battle against the system?


No Sweat is an examination of friendship, family and the fight for recognition.
