The Turbine Theatre opens with an assured revival of Harvey Fierstein’s Torch Song. This is the revised 2017 version, packing the original trilogy of plays into just over two and a half hours.

If you’ve ever taken time to listen to director Andrew Keates talking about being diagnosed as HIV positive, if you’ve read his tweets or impassioned blog posts or in any way been influenced by his fantastic and inspiring positivity then you’ll know that his story started with this play.
