Play Something

Following a highly successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017,  Stage Write present their acclaimed LGBT show about love, sex and music- the songs of our lives.

“Side One, track two. That song is about me.”

From beginning to end, M and F tell you the story of their love, and ask the DJ to Play Something.

Something to make love to, to split up to, to celebrate, to cry, and to play the Forever Song. They are the songs of all of us. Covering decades, younger become older and the play becomes the story of everyone who has loved, lost, and loved again, and had Our Song.
