A powerful new queer play

29 February 1988. Soho. His last night on earth. The intoxicating, vibrant Cruise is the true story of what should have been Michael Spencer’s last night on earth.

Following the phenomenal success of Channel4’s It’s a Sin, Cruise is a celebration of life, queer culture and survival, this is the uplifting and inspirational theatrical event of summer 2021.

Cruise is booking from 18 May 2021 until 13 June 2021 at the Duchess Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

4 years at most. That’s how long Michael has been given to live.

On the last night of his countdown – the 29th February, 1988 – Michael decides to go out with a bang. He puts on his favourite jacket, heads for Soho, and embarks on a long night of farewells. He says his goodbyes to friends, enemies and strangers; old haunts, dive bars, cafes, clubs and pubs; his brothers, sisters, allies and exes. He dances, sings, and says yes to everything and everyone. Then, with all his affairs taken care of, Michael promptly… survives.
