Since the decriminalisation of male homosexuality fifty years ago Britain has witnessed radical changes in the lives of the LGBT+ community. But is everyone truly at ease with this new-found visibility?
Iron Hoof Productions presents a reading of an extract of David Dandridge’s new play New Cross Spartacus, which explores the displacement and isolation of individuals, particularly older gay men, amid the increasing gentrification of once overlooked areas of London.
This will be followed by a Q&A with the production team and LGBT activists past and present including Lord Michael Cashman, co-founder of Stonewall, former actor and MEP, and Peter Scott-Presland, author of Amiable Warriors, the story of the gay pioneers who established the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, 1954-1973.
Written by David Dandridge

“In almost 40 years since the end of theatre censorship no gay-themed drama apart from Martin Sherman’s Bent has more shocked or disturbed me.”
