About A Single Man

"I make myself remember. I am afraid of forgetting. I will have to forget if I want to go on living." California, 1962. College professor George is grieving the death of his long-term partner Jim. As a middle-aged gay Englishman living in the Los Angeles suburbs, he is an outsider in every way. Haunted by his past and unable to move forward, we follow him on one very ordinary day. But for George, this is going to be a day like no other… A Single Man features in The Guardian’s 100 Best Novels Written in English, where it is described as ‘a work of compressed brilliance.’ Known to many through Tom Ford’s film, Christopher Isherwood’s masterpiece is now given a wry and compassionate retelling in Simon Reade’s new adaptation for the stage. Powerful and sexy, A Single Man is a darkly amusing study of grief, love and loneliness from the celebrated writer of Goodbye to Berlin, the inspiration for Cabaret. Age Recommendation: 16+
