Mart Crowley’s seminal play, The Boys in the Band, premiered in New York in 1968, just 14 months before the Stonewall riots that ignited the gay rights movement. Long before the likes of Martin Sherman‘s Bent (1979), Tony Kushner‘s Angels in America (1993) or Kevin Elyot‘s My Night With Reg (1994), this play broke new ground, changing history and the landscape of gay theatre.
